2015-08-05 The Second World War and the House of Romanov

A great date in the history of all humanity is fast approaching: the 70th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War. The entire world—even our former enemies—today show their respect for the courage and self-sacrifice of the people of the USSR, who played a fundamental role in this great victory. Approximately 40 million of our countrymen of various nationalities gave their lives to assure a bright future for humanity, for the chance to end forever bloody wars and world conflicts.

But decades have passed and there have appeared those who wished to revise the results of the Second World War, to find “new” architects of the victory, and to defame the heroes and raise on the pedestal of honor the names of traitors and collaborators. So the Foreign Minister of Poland now questions the right of Moscow to host a Victory Parade and furthermore claims that Auschwitz was liberated by “Ukrainians”; and in Ukraine, which is now torn apart by great turmoil and civil war, instead of honoring veterans, they glorify bandits and gangsters; and Bandera and Shukhevych, who openly collaborated with the Nazis, have become national heroes. Especially despairing are the so-called Baltic “patriots,” who are desecrating the graves of, and destroying the monuments to, Soviet soldier-liberators. In Riga, Vilnius, and Tallinn, walls are covered with graffiti, including even the vile swastika.

One could also cite other examples of the distortion of historical truth. Some publishers use clever words and the veil of a false patriotism to spread various sensational “discoveries,” which turn out, in the best case, to be nothing more than wild and irresponsible interpretations, and in the worst case, outright slander.
