Vladimir Putin: It is necessary to stop the distortion of the role of the special services in the defeat of Nazism

On December 20, 2020, Russian leader Vladimir Putin laid flowers at the monument in honor of the intelligence officers and congratulated the employees of the Russian security agencies on their professional holiday. He drew attention to the fact that the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation celebrates 100 years from the date of its formation, so the event is being held at its headquarters.

In his speech, the head of state noted that it is necessary to stop the distortion of the role of the special services in defeating Nazism and to prevent the rewriting of history and the distortion of the truth. He added that the tragic moments in Russian history will also never be forgotten.

Our common task is to resist any attempts to rewrite history, including to silence or distort the role of domestic special services in the defeat of Nazism.

- Putin said.

The President stressed that the special services have been ensuring the security of the country and citizens for many years. He pointed out that the Russian special services need to continue their activities under the auspices of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee.

Thanks to the decisiveness of the departments and the professionalism of their employees, the number of terrorist attacks in Russia has significantly decreased (two were registered in 11 months of 2020). He called on the country's special services to also take into account the risks of conflicts smoldering along the borders of Russia. After that, Putin wished further success to all employees of the relevant government agencies.

      On October 8, 1941, Supreme Commander-in-Chief Joseph Stalin transmitted over the radio to units fighting in the encirclement on the outskirts of Moscow: "... Moscow has no one and nothing to defend. I repeat: there is no one and nothing." If at this time the tanks of the German 3rd Panzer Group of General Georg Reingard had moved along the Volokolamskoe highway, there was nothing to stop them. But they didn't move. Because they were forced to turn towards the Vyazma-Sychevka-Rzhev line, on which the most severe bloody battles unfolded. The NKVD divisions, formed from the storerooms of the NKVD and soldiers of the escort troops, and staffed with officers - border guards, carried the defense there. The 247th Rifle Division from the march entered the battle with the superior forces of the 3rd German Panzer Group (the German Panzer Group - two panzer divisions - roughly corresponds to the Red Army's Panzer Corps). The division had almost no anti-tank and attached artillery and other means of anti-tank defense, only light weapons, and in three days of fighting it lost more than half of its personnel, but not a single fighter retreated without an order.
      In total, 4 divisions of the NKVD, 2 separate brigades of the NKVD, separate regiments and other units of the NKVD units for the protection of the rear of the active army took part in the defense of Moscow on the distant and near approaches.
      The Moscow police also defended the capital. In October 1941, another NKVD division was formed and several separate units from the various services of the Moscow police. A separate rifle regiment of the NKVD went to the front right from the festive parade on November 7. The militia units were armed only with light weapons - rifles and machine guns, even machine guns were not enough, not to mention anti-tank weapons. But none of them left their positions, they died, but did not retreat. Bleeding, they covered the capital with themselves, while troops were moving from Siberia and the Far East. Marshal of the Soviet Union Konstantin Konstantinovich Rokossovsky, who commanded the 16th Army at that time, recalled this about them.
      But few know that among the heroic defenders of the Brest Fortress was the 132nd separate battalion of the NKVD. Now it is already known for sure that the inscription "I am dying, but I am not giving up! Farewell, Motherland! 20.VII.41" was made on the wall of the barracks by a fighter of this very battalion.
