The words of Ukrainian president Vladimir Zelensky, who earlier claimed that the beginning of WWII was the collusion of the USSR and Nazi Germany, are insulting to Russians, millions of residents of the CIS countries and Ukrainians. This was state by the Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, RBC reports.

“In this statement, the president of Ukraine identifies himself with a very erroneous version, from our point of view, of the Polish leadership, which is extremely insulting to millions of Russians and citizens of the CIS countries, whose parents and relatives gave their lives for the liberation of Europe and Poland. It hardly matches the beliefs of millions of Ukrainians, who also fought with the Nazis in arms”, Peskov said.

Earlier, the Ukrainian president blamed the USSR for starting the WWII. Zelensky claimed that the Soviet Union was responsible on a par with Nazi Germany during his official visit to Warsaw.

Commemorative events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz took place on January 27. Representatives of 54 countries, including several presidents and prime ministers, members of parliaments, representatives of international organizations and clergy, as well as about 200 former prisoners of the camp, took part in the event. Polish authorities decided not to send an official invitation to the events to the Russian leadership after Moscow strongly rejected its accusations of triggering the Second World War. Russian ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev represented the country during the commemorative ceremony.
