"Only there was no war"

June 22 2005

64 years ago when the Great Patriotic War, in the crater that killed more than 20 million Soviet people. However, remember this, unfortunately, not all. And those who honor the heroism of the Russian people in this war, and saves his memory, try a hooting and with great glee to catch and expose to public ridicule.

I remember, and the celebration of May 9 - Victory Day over Nazi Germany - by some sort of unwritten pact of some foreign countries was accompanied by a political order. The Baltic countries, with U.S. support with even greater fury then talked about the Soviet occupation, and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, the Rada on his long-suffering country, racked my brains, go to Moscow or not.

However, it was always assumed that this day - June 22 - will remain in people's memory forever. However, unfortunately, once again have to make sure that it is more speech - the modern society of the skin crawls out to see and present the story in a different light.

For the record

Memorial day established by the Decree of President of Russia on June 8, 1996 and celebrated on the day of the Great Patriotic War, the Soviet Union against Nazi Germany. Length of 1,418 victims of the war days were about 27 million Soviet people.

Today is the Day of memory and grief across the country held a memorable event. Moscow has also not left out. Last night the youth movement Nashi held a rally, "remember about each." The participants laid flowers and lit candles at the embassies of the States - former Soviet republics in gratitude for his invaluable contribution to the victory. Then at 4 am on Poklonnaya Hill, they honored the memory of millions who died a minute of silence. Youth and veterans across the country met today as the dawn of mass graves and memorials.

And while the president of Russia laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier near the Kremlin walls, voices (related, among other things, the witnesses), equate the action "Ours" to the torchlight procession Nazis sample 30-ies. Others have called a march in memory of fighting for the motherland "pretentious action." Why then do not stoop to "provocation" - for greater absurdity?

I wonder how, in turn, will be seen the proposal of the International Youth Human Rights Movement in memory of victims of World War II shut down for a while the light? As a call to recall the UES and no more?

In World War II, which is rightly called our own, blood-decided the fate of all humanity and its independence. And despite all that on June 22 and May 9 - Red Russian calendar days already because the first half of the 40's of last century marked by the blood of Russian soldiers, the suffering of the people, their heroism and sacrifice.

At the same time, the war was a test of the national spirit and unity of peoples. Russia and its army, which is also now trying to tarnish, the world experienced a tragedy and survived.
