Putin has promised not to allow lies about the heroism of the Soviet Union in the struggle against Nazism. The head of state said that Russia will always remember what price was paid by the Soviet people and the losses suffered by the Red Army during the Great Patriotic war.

“Rzhevskiy memorial — another symbol of our common memory, a symbol of reverence for the great and selfless feat of the soldier-hero soldier-liberator, the victorious soldier, the soldier who saved Europe and the whole world from Nazism. Time has no power over this feat, and he should never, cannot be forgotten and even more smeared with lies and fraud. We don’t allow”, — said Vladimir Putin at the opening of the memorial to Soviet soldiers near Rzhev.
