Russian Efforts to Preserve the History of Victory

The Western defamation campaign against Russia is getting intense with the Ukrainian crisis as a momentum.

Against this backdrop, some European countries have become more brazen in their plots to dismantle the monuments to the Red Army and to distort the history.

Officers and men of the Red Army, during World War II, made a great contribution to wiping out for good the ruthless fascism threatening the existence of humankind and ensuring the peace and security of the world.

But some countries deny this historical truth and blame the Soviet Union for being a provoker of World War II. On the other hand, tragic events take place where those who had conspired with the fascists are hailed as “heroes of the nation.”

In recent days, “hot wind” is blowing so hard in the Baltic States to defile, destruct and dismantle the monuments to the Red Army. We even find them declaring their withdrawal in rapid succession from the treaties on preserving and maintaining the monuments to the Red Army.

In April 2022, the bill was submitted to the Estonian parliament to dismantle the monuments to the Red Army erected in public places. This was followed by the approval by the Latvian parliament of the bill to abrogate the treaty with Russia on preserving and maintaining the monument to the Red Army in May 2022.

Russia, on its part, is taking active steps to oppose the West in its ever-worsening moves to defame the monuments to the Red Army and distort the history, and to defend the history of victory.

The investigative committee of the Russian Federation filed law suits against several countries including Latvia and Lithuania for their acts of defaming the monuments to the Red Army. Russian foreign ministry slammed the acts of destructing the monuments in the Baltic States, branding them as the ones of stabbing in the back of the antifascists including those from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, and their descendants.

The permanent representatives of Russia and other member states of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, at the joint statement issued on the 77 th anniversary of the victory of World War II, sounded a note of warning against the attempts to reexamine the result of World War II and distort the history. They also emphasized that the act of dismantling and defaming the monuments constitutes defilement to the soldiers who laid down their lives to liberate Europe and Asian countries from fascism.

The official spokesperson for the Russian foreign ministry warned that the provocative decision by the Latvian authority to remove the legal restrictions on dismantling the monument to the Red Army will result in destroying the basis for normal relations between the two countries, and inviting national feud in the Latvian society.

The media are now commenting that the moves to dismantle the monuments to the Red Army and distort the history committed in some European countries are aimed at reviling the exploits of the Red Army and the Soviet Union which defeated fascism, and that this will inevitably call forth a strong response from Russia.
