PETROZAVODSK, August 2. /TASS/. In this century, Russia advocates a just world order contrary to efforts of some other countries, speaker of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Sergei Naryshkin said on Tuesday.
"We can see that the world has become less safe in the 21st century," Naryshkin said at a meeting with members of Russia’s military-patriotic youth organizations. "The situation would have probably been even more difficult but for our country’s consistent and firm stance to protect a just world order notwithstanding other countries’ efforts. Unfortunately, they not only express their opinion in an aggressive manner but also take certain actions against our country."
Naryshkin recalled NATO’s decisions taken at its Warsaw summit, adding that the alliance is moving closer to Russia’s borders, including to the northwest of the country.
The speaker drew attention to never-ending attempts to falsify history citing Ukraine where the current authorities proclaim Nazi accomplices national heroes. "This is, of course, the betrayal of our common memory. This is also a betrayal of the future generation as well, the current younger generation," he said.
"Our country has made a pivotal contribution to the victory over Nazism. A few years after the victory, the Soviet Union prevented another world war from being unleashed by ensuring a nuclear parity," Naryshkin said.
He recalled that Russia pioneered the establishment of international organizations, "which were created after World War Two relying on World War Two lessons. Their objective is to save the world from unleashing new global conflicts," he said.
