“It is a pity that we must resort to such measures to protect historical truth”

Thus, a legal rule was introduced prohibiting the identification of goals, decisions and actions of the USSR leadership, USSR command and military personnel with the goals, decisions and actions of Nazi Germany leadership, Third Reich command and military personnel and European “Axis” countries (Berlin-Rome-Tokyo) in in public speeches or in public works, as well as in the media and on the Internet.
Why such a law became necessary, said the “MK” chairman of the presidium of the All-Russian organization “Officers of Russia”, the hero of the Russian Federation, Major General Sergei Lipovoy:
– It is, of course, a great pity that in order to preserve the memory of the descendants of the Soviet people's unprecedented act, we must resort to such measures. But in the light of the latest events in the world, in the light of how historical facts are distorted, it is our direct responsibility. This is a duty for those who gave their health, youth, life, salvation from fascism not only the Soviet Union, but the whole world. As long as we remember our history, we will not allow these terrible events to recur.
According to Sergei Lipovoy, “the roles of the USSR and Germany in World War II are incompatible.” – Therefore, the law prohibiting all this is relevant. Unfortunately, almost a century has passed since the worst military catastrophe in world history, and not everyone knows the details of the confrontation between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. They do not understand the importance of the victory that our country has won and the terrible price it has paid for it. There are people who criticize the decisions of the Soviet commanders of that time and devalue their contribution to victory, which makes it almost an accident.
