According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, France and England should be blamed for the attack Hitler conducted on Europe. He stated it in Moscow during a meeting with young historians. He also encouraged them to explore the issue of preparation for the war, reports joinfo.ua.
In 1940, in Katyn, after the partition of Poland, the Soviet secret police executed more than 20,000 captured and arrested Poles. A large-scale campaign of the Nazis, who took a course on mass destruction, has led to the deaths of three million Jews. And it is only in Poland.
Until 1989, the Kremlin has not officially denied the secret protocols of the Covenant, which tells that the Communists and the Nazis agreed on the division of Romania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Poland and Lithuania into spheres of influence.
According to critics, President Putin began to use historical events as a tool that will serve as a reinforcement for his authoritarian rule.
It is to be recalled that on November 4, Russia celebrated the National Unity Day. President Putin visited the Moscow exhibition of medieval Rurik dynasty.
It is reported that this exhibition was trying hard to draw a certain parallel between the past and the present Russian Federation. And this present is characterized by the confrontation of Russia and the West because of the war in Ukraine.
