MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. The idea of Ukraine’s joining NATO resembles of revanchism of forces, which supported Nazi Germany, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev wrote in Great Victory in Great War article, which the Krasnaya Zvezda daily publishes on Wednesday.
"The reality demonstrates short memories of the political elites in some countries, which used to be parts of the Soviet Union," he said in the article. "Most openly and cynically fascism is given new birth in the Baltic States and in Ukraine. They announce as heroes the criminals, whose hands are red with blood of their compatriots."
He also wrote about the attempts to distort the historic truth about the past war.
"The objective of those lies is clear: to fail the force and moral authority of modern Russia, to deprive it of the status of a winner, which will be followed by respective international legal consequences."
"We are calling first of all on European countries to condemn all attempts to rehabilitate fascism, to distort the history and to outlaw all forms of national, race and other discrimination, which is unacceptable in Europe of the third millennium," he said in the article. "Unacceptable are new barriers and block posts in the European continent, as separation causes lack of trust, and a lack of trust causes fears and armament, thus arising military dangers."
The memory of the war offers practical lessons of observing our national interests and national security of this country.
"We must remember: wars do not begin all of a sudden. Evil is growing if prevails, if people try to ignore it. Only together can we respond to modern threats. Only on the basis of good neighbourhood can we settle problems of global security so that ideals of justice and kindness triumph in the world and so that future generations had free and happy lives.".
