MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. False statement about Soviet troops treated "not as liberators but as occupants" during World War Two are easily refuted by documents, including by photographs of those years, Chief of Staff of the Russian Presidential Administration Sergey Ivanov said while visiting a Second World War memorial in Moscow together with head of the General Office of the Communist Party of China Li Zhanshu.
Ivanov noted that various statements to this effect that could be heard now were nothing else but attempts to falsify history. They claim that "that was not liberation but enslavement and occupation". "When we show photos depicting people with flowers welcoming Soviet troops, these myths are debunked," he said.
Ivanov and Li Zhanshu began the museum tour by visiting the Hall of Remembrance and Sorrow, which honors all Soviet people who perished in the war or were reported missing.
The two politicians also visited an international exhibition dedicated to the 1938 Battle of Wuhan and Soviet assistance to China in its struggle against Japan.
In conclusion, their paid a visit to the Hall of Glory featuring feats of heroism by Red Army soldiers and officers.
