Today, Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, responded to the White House’s provocative statement that only the United States and Great Britain won in the World War II.
“Today, not everyone is satisfied with our victory. Some people want to review the lessons of history, but we will not let anyone to forget them, ”he said.
The ambassador emphasized that attempts to delete the USSR from the list of victors over fascism are unacceptable. “I can’t even imagine how people can say such blasphemous words today, knowing that 27 million of Soviet people died. I believe that we should not be silent, ” he said.
“We should discuss this topic and try to convey to the ordinary Americans, to ordinary people in Europe, that the Soviet soldier liberated Europe, defended the independence of Europe and the Soviet Union,” Anatoly Antonov concluded.
