West’s revanchist policies aim to destroy historical memory and WWII results

Political expert Aleksei Dzermant commented on Latvian Seimas’ decision to declare May 9th ‘a day of remembrance for the victims of the war in Ukraine, honouring the Ukrainian civilians and military personnel who have suffered or died as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine’

In his talk with Alfa Radio, the expert noted, “This is a continuation of revanchist policies that have their roots in the West and that have been flourishing there. They are trying to destroy the historical memory and the results of the Great Patriotic War and Second World War. Importantly, they are trying to justify it with modern events in the world. However, these events have not arisen from scratch. The seeds of hatred and Nazism have been ripening for a long time. These ideologies are designed to lead to war. Ukraine has become a victim of these concepts. Sadly, the country has failed to cope with this ideology inside itself. These concepts need to be defeated, and then peace will reign – and we will be able to open a new era.” 

Latvia’s Parliament has urgently passed a law to make May 9th day of remembrance for Ukraine war victims.
