MOSCOW, May 10. /TASS/. Germany remembers that the Red Army played a decisive role in liberating the country from Nazism, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday following talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"From my point of view, the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is difficult to understand, if one doesn’t take into account the additional secret protocol," the chancellor said. "From this perspective, I believe it was wrong, it was done illegitimately."
"Nevertheless, of course, World War Two was unleashed by Nazi Germany," Merkel said. "And we, Germany, bear responsibility for this. "It is our historical responsibility, and we will constantly recall about this, about the fact that through our fault millions lost their lives and that the Red Army played a decisive role in Germany’s liberation, " the German chancellor noted.
