ANOSINO (Moscow region), January 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that the flow of lies, nonsense and "dishonest statements" made by other countries on the Red Army’s contribution to the World War II victory must be rebuffed.
He urged Russia’s governors to organize the work to fight the deliberate attempts to distort history.
"You know which absurd, dishonest statements our certain opponents have resorted to for the sake of political ambitions," he said.
"We certainly must counter such moves, rebuff the flow of impudent lies, falsifications, rigging and distortion of historical facts," Putin said.
The president told the governors to organize the work in Russia’s regions to counter the attempts to distort history. "You should organize in your regions the appropriate work, involving competent experts, scientists, representatives of pubic associations and above all, youth organizations," he said.
Putin said that attempts to distort history have been made intentionally. "It only seems to us sometimes that they talk nonsense that would attract nobody’s attention," he said. "It’s not so, because it is embedded in the minds of millions of people, and then [these lies] are used as a certain source to refer to, therefore, such nonsense, that is nonsense only on the face of it, should be disproved by today’s standards — with a calm, not hysterical attitude, dismissing this nonsense as harmful," Putin said.
The Russian president said he was certain that the governors would be able to worthily prepare for the 70th anniversary of the World War II Victory celebration.
