HAVANA, May 6. /TASS/. Russia appreciates US contribution to the Victory over Nazism, but Washington’s present-day policy causes one to think of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Chairman of the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, Sergey Naryshkin told reporters on Wednesday.
"Today, there are plenty of real and true threats, which require concerted effort by all sober-minded forces in the world, the way it happened in the middle of the past century, when the anti-Hitler coalition was formed to fight a common and dangerous enemy - Nazism," Naryshkin said. "Of course, we remember the contribution of the American Allies to the Victory over Nazism, we remember the Allied landing in Normandy, the opening of the second - western front, we remember the historic link-up on the Elbe River," he added.
"Unfortunately, Washington’s current policy brings to mind both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I mean the atomic bombings of the two Japanese cities," the Duma speaker noted.
Naryshkin added that "the United States was the only country to use nuclear weapons, it did it in a barbaric manner, because weapons of mass destruction were used against the civilian population." "We remember about this as well," the Russian lawmaker said.
