“This moral degradation paved the way for cynical falsifications of the history of World War II, attempts to incite Russophobia, glorify traitors, ridicule the memory of their victims, and eliminate the bravery of those who fought and suffered for Victory,” he said. statements by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin pointed out that the USA, especially after the collapse of the Soviet Union, “began to speak of their excellence, which is humiliating to the whole world.”
