SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Russian media reported President Putin’s speech on the history of WWII and hiding the crimes of Nazis. “It is hard to imagine that real ‘death factories,’ mass executions and deportations have become a terrible reality of the 20th century, that they were cold-bloodedly and thriftily organized in Europe that seemed to be civilized back then,” Vladimir Putin said.
“Direct attempts to silence history, to distort and rewrite history are inadmissible and immoral. Behind these attempts often lies the desire to hide one’s own disgrace, the disgrace of cowardice, hypocrisy and treachery, the intent to justify the direct or indirect collaboration with Nazism,” the Russian President stated.
“In places where they imprint the ideas of ethnic and moral supremacy into people’s heads, where they destroy or scoff at human values, civilization is being quickly and inevitably replaced by barbarity,” Putin explained.
Russian Leader added: “We all know the danger and the destructive potential contained in the policy of double standards, indifference and lack of concern about other people’s fate. A typical example is the current situation in the south-east of Ukraine where civilian residents of Donetsk, Lugansk and other cities and towns are being killed for many months by cold-blooded attackers.”
