The people of Russia and other nations celebrate the 77th anniversary of Victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War.
The Soviet citizens, among whose 27 millions sacrificed their lives, played a crucial role in defeating Nazi Germany and, together with the Allies, liberated Europe from the fascist plague.
This victory saved the Soviet Union’s and other counties’ nations, persecuted by the barbaric Nazi ideology, from the extermination.
Unfortunately, today there is a trend to diminish the role of the USSR in World War II. Some politicians spread propagandist narratives, which claim that the decisive contribution to the victory was made by the Western Allies, thus fading into the background the feat of our heroes and distorting the historical truth.
It is regrettable to witness Nazi glorification today: the Nazi Germany-styled torchlight processions in some countries, installing the monuments in honor of the henchmen of this ideology. At the same time the memorials and graves of the Soviet warriors are destroyed and vandalized. Another alarming sign is the refusal of some members of international community to vote for the UN General Assembly resolution on the inadmissibility of glorifying Nazism in all its forms, which is being annually promoted by Russia.
In this regard the consistent support of the Government of Bangladesh to this document is quite valuable, as it expresses the country’s commitment to confront the inhumane and imperialistic ideologies.
The memory of people who fell on the battlefield, fighting the enemies of the Motherland and civilization, will be alive, as all our generations commend this great holiday.
