Moscow, March 7 – Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that it was necessary to put an end to the falsifications of the West, led by the United States, about its main contribution to the defeat of fascism in World War II.
“We will discuss the main events of military-political action on the eve of the 78th anniversary of the Victory. Western countries, led by the United States, have unleashed an absolutely unprincipled information war against Russia. And our opponents are actively and shamelessly promoting the lies that it was they who made the main contribution to the defeat of fascism and the end of World War II. This and any attempts to falsify the historical truth must end, ”Said Shoigu on a conference call with the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces.
The minister also said that Russia had no right to allow “the lessons of the terrible tragedy” to which Nazism led mankind in the 20th century to be “distorted and forgotten”.
The West has forgotten the lessons of the Battle of Stalingrad – and in vain
