In the state Duma propose to revise the rating of the most controversial historical document of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The author of the initiative Deputy Alexei Zhuravlev said that the decision of 1989 was made under pressure and too demonize the document.
According to the Deputy Zhuravlev, the document must be taken, and from the point of view of protection of Russian history to protect against attempts to rewrite it, which is actively taking Western partners in recent years. The rhetoric of these attempts has reached the point that the USSR has been accused of unleashing the Second world war along with Nazi Germany.
“Today there is a fierce attack on our heritage and, in particular, the Great Patriotic war… When they started doing it, I remind you, this started after 2010, of course, we need to react. We can’t give that only historians of those things, because they are already politicized, and politicized in the extreme. Even if trump said that during the Second world defeated States and great Britain”, — said the Deputy of the state Duma Alexey Zhuravlev.
did the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact delay the German attack on the Soviet Union and gave his conclusion, the ability of the USSR to gain time to prepare for war? The debate on this subject not subside until now. But, as historians believe, if the non-aggression Pact, the USSR would have been involved in the war much earlier.
“These decisions of the Soviet leadership was in full compliance with the state interests of the time and allowed us to better prepare for entry into the Second world war”, — says the head of the scientific Department of the Russian military-historical society Yuri Nikiforov.
In 1989, when the Plenum of the CPSU Central Committee adopted a document condemning the signing of the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact, the Union was on the brink of extinction. Then, according to experts, some forces within the country and abroad were ready in favor of the so-called Western friends to take and such bondUNT.
“Our corrupt party nomenklatura, which was at the time, did everything to please the West, and, of course, had to be a complete idiot to not use it. Was created the initiative group of the same party workers who seem to sought these documents by which to condemn the peace Treaty. They were trying to do. In fact, the collapse of the Soviet Union began then and not with the Belovezhskaya agreements”, — says Alexey Zhuravlev.
According to many experts, the document adopted in 1989 denouncing the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, it had an obvious purpose.
“the Goal is to facilitate the separation of the Baltic States from the Soviet Union or, as they said, to let go of the Baltic States — evident in the preparation and adoption of this resolution. It was done in favor of the nationalists in the Baltic States, who took the course to secede from the Soviet Union”, — said Yuri Nikiforov.
that is why now the Baltic States scream the loudest, causing the Russian ambassadors. Say, the document on the condemnation of the Covenant should remain in force. Many experts have noticed: the Baltic States began to realize that Russia bothered to be nice and turn a blind eye to the attempts of rewriting history.
“Actually the policy of the ruling circles of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland led Russia to the conclusion about the need to change policy: the offer of friendship and an outstretched hand to return to the cynical era, when above all are its own interests, and everything else is subordinated to these interests”, — said Miroslav Mitrofanov, co-Chairman of the Russian Union of Latvia.
Among Russian historians in this matter seems to be complete unity. The resolution of the Congress of people’s deputies of the USSR from the 24th of December 1989, which was groundless condemned the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, they are on the June 23 roundtable unanimously called to cancel.
