MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev believes that it is a crime against morality to rewrite the results of the Great Patriotic War. Medvedev made a statement to this effect at a meeting with retirees he held together with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
“When there appear various interpretations, re-writings of history at a certain angle – that’s a crime against morality and the memory of the nearly 30 million people who died in that war,” he said.
“Such things should not be permitted. There must be no debates over obvious facts, at least, in history manuals. He agreed that scholars were free to discuss various versions, but “history manuals narrating such events must follow the generally accepted point of view.”
“Otherwise, there will develop an absolutely distorted perception of history,” Medvedev warned.
The president and prime minister invited a group of thirty Russian retirees to the Kremlin to discuss the burning problems of today over a cup of tea in the Winter Garden.
Most of the guests were from central regions of Russia. The “youngest” guest was 56 and the oldest, 86.
