Vladimir Putin: History revisionism is unacceptable
History revisionism implies huge risks, Russian President Vladimir Putin believes. He made this statement in the course of his speech at Pobeda (Victory) organizing committee session. In his opinion, this is a direct way towards splitting the world community, RIA Novosti informs.
Putin has regretfully informed that there are other ways to approach history; some politicians strive to turn it into ideological and political weapon. Such cynical attitude to the past and juggling with historical facts lead to new separation tendencies and form an image of the enemy.
According to the head of state, the most dangerous thing is that some countries try to praise Nazism and justify fascists’ allies. “The course for praising Nazism and justifying fascists’ allies held by some countries is especially dangerous. It abuses the memory of Nazi crimes’ victims. Such politics nourishes nationalist, xenophobian and radical forces”, Putin claimed.
The head of state has added that Russia will not change its position that “history is called for uniting people, warning against mistakes and helping reinforce good neighboring relations, no matter how difficult or contradictory it may be.
As per Vladimir Putin, Russia is always open for a dialogue on controversial issues in history at any level.
