a Separate state should not rewrite history in their own interests. This was stated by the representative of the British foreign office, commenting on the article of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin published in the journal the National Interest.

“Our common history should not be used as a political tool or correspond with States in their own interests,” — said the British foreign Ministry, quoted by RBC. the Ministry added that the victory over the Nazis in world war II managed to win thanks to the joint efforts of the allies. “Courage and the great sacrifices of the people of great Britain, the United States, the Soviet Union and all of the allies led to the defeat of the Nazi regime,” said the British foreign office.

Recall that in his article Putin pointed out that the responsibility for the war lies with all the world’s leading state, and it is unfair to assume that the reason was only “a two-day visit to Moscow Minister for foreign Affairs Ribbentrop Pact the Nazis”. The Russian leader also noted that Russia will always be grateful for the help of allies in the war.

to Write an article about the war Putin has decided after statements of representatives of the countries of the West, as well as the statement of the European Parliament in which it was noted that the Second world war began the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and the Soviet Union. In the text it was noted that the war began with “the German attack and the Soviet Union on Poland in 1939”. In this case, “before the armed aggression of the third Reich and the Soviet Union signed the agreement of 23 August 1939, known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.” Germany and the Soviet Union “consistently sought to overthrow the Versailles order in Europe and to impose their rules in other European Nations,” said a statement from the European Parliament. In response, Putin said that Soviet troops entered Poland when “the Polish government has lost control over its armed forces and what happenst in the” country.” He also added that “the USSR is not mired in direct contact with Adolf Hitler, while the heads of France and great Britain had signed with the head of the Third Reich, a number of documents”. “In Russia there can be no feelings of guilt for the outbreak of the Second world war, and excuses those who are trying to rewrite history, no,” — concluded Putin in a speech on may 8, the eve of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory.
