Today more than ever, it is sad that in the world there are countries, there are politicians, there are people who are questioning the indisputable fact that the Soviet Union dealt a blow to the Nazi hordes and the Victory in the great Patriotic war belongs to the Soviet Union and the red army", – told the audience Ambassador Anatoly Antonov.
