Putin: Extremely Important to Recognize WWII Genocide Against Soviet People
"When you talk about the need to preserve historical memory, […] I fully and completely support this, and we will do so at the state level so that nothing can repeat [itself]," Putin emphasized in an apparent reference to the Second World War.
"The most effective thing is the memories of those who went through those tough times. Life is life. Many veterans have already passed away. As for those who are still alive, we must do our best to use your knowledge. This is evidence, not books, in which you can rewrite something for the sake of someone’s benefit," the Russian president underlined.
