MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. Attempts to rewrite history and rehabilitate the Nazis are totally unacceptable, immoral and very dangerous, since they are pushing the world towards new conflicts, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
In his telegram to the participants in the conference dedicated to the role played by the Soviet Union and China in the Victory over Nazi Germany and Japan, the Russian leader noted that the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Second World War was of particular importance for Russia and China, since "the peoples in our two countries had sustained the worst losses in the struggle against Nazism and militarism."
"For us, totally unacceptable are cynical attempts to rewrite history for the sake of short-term political interests and to rehabilitate the Nazis and their henchmen. Such actions are not only immoral but also extremely dangerous. They are pushing the world to new conflicts, to cruelty and violence," Putin noted.
The Russian President added that the peoples of Russia and China who fought shoulder to shoulder "had made a decisive contribution to the victory over the enemy." "Russia will never forget the courage and heroism of its Chinese comrades-in-arms who gave their lives for the sake of our common Victory. China likewise cherishes the memories of Soviet soldiers and officers who died when fighting the invaders on the Chinese soil," Putin’s address says.
The Russian leader has voiced confidence that the conference will contribute to "the establishment of true-to-life vision of events of the war years, will help perpetuate feats of heroism of our fathers and grandfathers and will make a significant contribution to the education of the younger generation in the spirit of patriotism, humanism and people’s friendship.".
