Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! Dear colleagues! Chairman of the Council of Veterans of St. Petersburg Volobuev Vasily Tikhonovich. Let me congratulate you on the New Year 2020 and all those present here, because this is the year of the 75th anniversary of our Great Victory, this is the Year of memory and glory. You have rightly recently given a tough and documentary rebuff to those who are trying to distort the history of the Great Patriotic War, to belittle the role of our country in the victory. Three-quarters of their personnel and equipment was destroyed on our front. Thank you very much for this presentation. We will now work even more actively to combat the falsifiers of history. Sorry to interrupt you, I just can’t help but to add. I already talked about this, I just said in the message: we will definitely create a center for archival documents, film and photo materials, and we will shut mouth to those who are trying to re-read the story, misrepresent it and belittle the role of our fathers, our grandfathers, our heroes who died defending their homeland and protecting the whole world practically from the “brown plague” – from Nazism. I think that this website and in general this center will be open to both our citizens and the whole world. And we will not allow these attempts to present history in a completely bad light. I want to emphasize once again that we will shut up this filthy mouth with documents forever so to disgrace them. After all, you just said how many enemy equipment and manpower were destroyed on the Eastern Front, on the Soviet-German Front. And what losses did we have? You know, I’ll go to Israel now to take part in the unveiling of a monument to the victims of besieged Leningrad. And I am very grateful, we should all be grateful to the leadership of Israel and those people who were the initiators of this event. This is a good event that recalls the victims of World War II, recalls who made a decisive contribution to the fight against Nazism. You know, I sometimes even think, and now I began to understand this, that in general, Jewish public organizations and the leadership of Israel are doing the right thing, that they do not allow the world to forget about the victims of the Holocaust. Incidentally, among the victims of the Holocaust, a significant, very large number of Jews were citizens of the Soviet Union. But we, too, should not let anyone forget about the victims of other peoples of the USSR, the Russian people. Indeed, of all the losses of the Soviet Union during the Second World War, World War II, almost 70 percent of the losses occurred in the RSFSR, that is, in today’s Russia. Also, they should not let us forget, in fact, about the genocide of other peoples of the Russian Federation and the former Soviet Union. Extremely important mission. Once again I want to repeat this, let it sound rude, but it is true: this filthy mouth, which is opened by some figures “beyond the hill”, in order to achieve their short-term political goals, we will shut up with truthful documentary information.
