During the Belarus people’s assembly, Alexander Lukashenko said that the West forgot promises not to push NATO to the East.
It is no longer worth shouting: how can you rewrite history?! No, the census process has entered its final stage, and it's too late to ring the bells, gathering them for battle - the war has begun. Time to win.
Immediately after the end of World War II, a campaign began in the West, in which its results were radically revised and history was rewritten. Dozens of institutions, hundreds of publicists, historians and writers worked to minimise the role of the USSR in the victory over Hitler's Germany and, at the same time, to exalt the participation of the West.
When this - the first - stage ended, a new one began: they decided to put the Soviet Union, as they say, on the same blackboard with the Nazis. This was also done deliberately.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s campaign on historical revisionism of WWII and is also consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narrative about anti-Russian policies of the aggressive West. According to the Kremlin's policy, the official Russian historiography is the only “true” way of interpreting the historical events about WWII.
The European Parliament called the war the bloodiest tragedy of the century, which resulted in millions of victims of authoritarian regimes both of fascist Germany and the USSR. The European Parliament adopted a resolution, describing the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact of 23 August 1939 as a key element paving the way for the outbreak of World War II. The European Parliament also paid tribute to the victims of Stalinism, Nazism and other totalitarian and authoritarian regimes. Regardless of this, the Western historians acknowledge the role played by the USSR in defeating Nazism and do not question the Soviet contribution to the victory in WWII and the status of the USSR as a country which had won in WWII. The policy of the US or the EU is not directed against Russia or any other country.
