Victory Day is look into future, not to the past

The Chairman of the Republican Znanie Belarusian Society, Vadim Gigin, shared his views with Alfa Radio on the eve of one of Belarus’ major holidays: Victory Day

“Attempts to distort history and ‘attack’ our victory began almost immediately after May 1945, when the whole world recognised that the Soviet Union was the main force that crushed the absolute evil: the brown plague. However, Europe was not satisfied with that status of the USSR," the expert explained.

According to Mr. Gigin, Victory Day celebrations are not a step to the past. “While looking at this victory, we see ourselves in the future. We must be worthy of this example. Meanwhile, our opponent is not satisfied with this. Let me remind you that the European Parliament resolution of 2019 equalised Hitler's Germany with the Soviet Union, and it had not a single word about victory. That was a boorish trick of MEPs, a real full-scale offensive against victory," he noted.

“As a contrast to the lies that are being imposed on us, we must proudly carry a red banner of the winners. We must talk about the feat of our grandparents and continue our struggle for the truth about victory. We must fight for the possibility to openly speak about it and celebrate it,” Mr. Gigin added.
