MOSCOW, May 9. /TASS/. It was the Soviet Union that determined the outcome of World War Two and Russia will resist any attempts to reject this accomplishment, President Vladimir Putin said at the military parade on Red Square devoted to the 73rd anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.
"Today there are attempts to deny the achievement of the people, which saved Europe and the world from slavery, from extermination and from the horrors of the Holocaust, and bury in oblivion the authenticity of the heroes, falsify, re-write and distort its entire history," the Russian president said.
"We will never allow this," Putin vowed.
