US Media: Putin taught West a historical lesson


Russian President Vladimir Putin taught the West a historical lesson, writes American authoritative magazine Forbes.


It was noted that another popular American magazine, The National Interest, on June 18, 2020 published an article by the Russian leader on the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. In it, the head of the Russian state warned that historical revisionism, the manifestations of which are now observed in Western countries, is unacceptable, since it is extremely dangerous.

Putin is unhappy with any prospect that his country's role in defeating Nazism can be diminished or disrespectfully

- consider in the publication.

In Forbes noted that the President of Russia referred to the resolution of the European Parliament of September 2019, where the USSR, along with the Third Reich, was accused of unleashing the Second World War. The conclusion that Putin made was extremely clear, to desecrate, and even more insulting memory, was vile.

Why do 75 years after the end of the conflict raise such topics?

- inquired about the publication.

The publication concludes that during the Second World War, the USSR lost more than 20 million people. That is, every seventh inhabitant of the country. At the same time, the losses of Great Britain and the United States are generally not comparable with this. Great Britain is one of 127, and the USA is one of 320. Therefore, the memory of this victory will live in Russia and other republics of the former USSR forever.

So Putin taught a good lesson so that the world community does not forget about the role and contribution of the Soviet people to the victory over Nazi Germany.

    It is strange that Putin did not say anything about an article in Russian law on the “desecration, insult, interpretation” of WWII events.
    I would call the article number, all its parts, the terms for each part, at the same time I told in detail about the places / conditions of the sentence - look, and in the West they would quiet down. So what happens? Putin changed the interpretation of the facts, the West did not agree, corrected, Putin introduced an article for his own, so that it would be disgraceful, and he called Westerners scoundrels - and because all this his writings were before the election, then earned a bunch of points from his washed. Normal tactics - soar for another 16 years ....

    The West has become completely insolent; they must be shaken well. Maybe for a long time there was no war? Then there will be no time for Russophobia, gender change, gays and schnitzels with basil!

    US Media: Putin taught the West a historical lesson.

    or

    Putin's article - “Collection of Myths” about WWII.

    https://www.golos-ameriki.ru/a/putin-article-second-world-war/5470767.html

    Among other things, the President of the Russian Federation called on all countries to actively publish archives relating to the war and its preceding period, "as Russia has done in recent years."

    “How has Russia been doing in recent years?” Putin is disingenuous, Russia as it did not open its archives, and will not open.

    “Mikhail Mints believes that the situation with access to the Russian archives is simply“ disgusting ”:“ Our historians have been visiting the Baltic states and Ukraine for a long time and regularly, because providing access to even data from the 19th century is much better than in Russia. And my colleague wrote a thesis on the post-war Soviet military-industrial complex in Washington. In the United States, by that time, the relevant documents of the American intelligence had been declassified, and it dug up a lot of information, which in the Russian archives is decidedly impossible to obtain. We still have classified a very large array of documents, even for the pre-war period ... "

    Before teaching others how to declassify the archives of the Second World War, you must first clean up the house, summed up the historian. It seems to him Putin’s article for the most part outlines stereotypes that have long been circulating in protective literature. ”

    Igor Chubais agrees that the Russian archives, unlike the European ones, are becoming more and more closed: “In Germany, for example, there are no documents about the Second World War that would be classified. But Putin has already promised to open all our archives, and then, they say, everything will fall into place. He generally likes to promise, but his words often diverge from the deed. ”

    “It is clear that with the current approach to history in Russia, which has turned into a pseudoscience and a“ collection of myths, ”archives in the country will not be opened for a long time,
    concluded a Moscow professor.

    Putin published an article on World War II in the "authoritative" American magazine National Interest.
    “National Interest” has been published by the neoconservative “Center for National Interests” since 1985. The publisher and CEO of the magazine is Dmitry Simes. It is worth noting that the editorial board was Alexey Pushkov. Among the well-known authors is Maria Butina (2015 article “The Bear and the Elephant "about the fact that Trump’s victory is beneficial for Russia) and Lyle Goldstein, who justified why the American establishment should reconsider its views on the entry of Crimea into Russia.
    The publisher Simes, along with Molotov’s grandson Vyacheslav Nikonov, conducts the Big Game social and political talk show on Channel One. The circulation is several thousand copies.
