MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – Despite attempts to rewrite the pages of the past that are being made today, the truth is that Soviet soldiers came to Germany not to take revenge on the Germans, but with a noble and great mission of liberation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an article timed to the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War published on the website of the Kremlin.

Vladimir Putin recalled that the Great Patriotic War began 80 years ago and claimed tens of millions of lives, ruined the country’s economic potential and cultural property.

“We are proud of the courage and steadfastness of the heroes of the Red Army and home front workers who not only defended the independence and dignity of our homeland, but also saved Europe and the world from enslavement. Despite attempts to rewrite the pages of the past that are being made today, the truth is that Soviet soldiers came to Germany not to take revenge on the Germans, but with a noble and great mission of liberation,” the article reads.

Vladimir Putin note that the memory of the heroes who fought against Nazism is sacred. “We remember with gratitude our allies in the anti-Hitler coalition, participants in the Resistance movement, and German anti-fascists who brought our common victory closer,” the Russian leader said.
