STARAYA RUSSA, April 6. /TASS/. It is impossible to reshape history to suit the political situation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.
"To suit the current situation on the political agenda, no matter how hard some [people] try to change it, including by using such methods as the heroization of Nazism, they will fail. It is impossible to reshape history to suit the political situation," Putin said.
"Though, of course, certain damage can be done by these actions. And the main threat is, you know, in the fact that the feeling of danger is becoming more obtuse in people for such extreme expressions as extremism and its horrible form — Nazism," the president said.
Putin noted that the most effective way to preserve history is to talk to veterans, listen to their stories, and see evidence of what really happened in the World War II.
