MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Recent attempts to rewrite the history of the World War II and Russia’s role in it are nothing but ‘cynical lies’ aimed to deprive the country of its ‘victor-country status,’ President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
The Russian president said that "the insolent defamation of the whole generation of people, who gave everything they had for this Victory and stood up for peace in the world," was aimed "at eroding the power and moral authority of modern Russia and to deprive it of the status of the victor-country with all the following international legal consequences."
Russian President has instructed Russia’s Victory Day celebration organizing committee to effectively counter attempts to distort the truth about World War II.
"The task of the Russian organizing committee in each Russian region is to effectively counter these challenges with the citizens’ active participation and support; it is important to use all the possibilities to tell the truth about the Fatherland history, about combat heroism and labor achievements of our ancestors, to open the doors before those who want to become known in this field, fulfil their aspiration to make a contribution to the national cause, patriotic education, defending the own country’s national interests," the president said at a meeting of the Victory organizing committee.
