Vladimir Putin calls all nations to learn lessons of WW II.
Russian President, Vladimir Putin said Russia stands completely for creating a non-aligned system of international security to fight global terror. While speaking at the V-Day parade in Moscow, the president called on all nations to learn the lessons of World War II.
The Russian president while addressing the crowds on Moscow’s Red Square ahead of a parade dedicated to the 71st anniversary of victory in WWII said, “Today our civilization has faced brutality and violence – terrorism has become a global threat. We must defeat this evil, and Russia is open to join forces with all countries and is ready to work on the creation of a modern, non-aligned system of international security.”
According to Vladimir Putin, the lessons of the World War II indicated that double standards and myopic indulgence to those who are developing new criminal strategies are intolerable.
He noted, “The lessons of history show that peace on our planet doesn’t establish itself, that you need to be on high alert.”
Putin added that the Great Patriotic War (the term used in Russia and former Soviet republics to describe the conflict on the Eastern Front from 1941-45) will always remain “an outstanding, sacred heroic deed of our people, a call to live according to conscience, to keep the height of the truth and justice, to transfer these values from generation to generation.”
“Our fathers and grandfathers defeated the powerful, merciless enemy, in front of whom many countries folded,” he said.
“It was our servicemen who gave the Nazis and their accomplices’ full retaliation for millions of victims, for all the barbarities and excesses on our land.”
Putin added that Russian soldiers have proven that they are “worthy successors to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War who are defending the country’s interests with honor.”
