German Chancellor Angela Merkel showed " sverhsoznanie ", calling the Japanese " not close its eyes to the past ", And at the same time her own refusal to participate in the celebrations in Moscow on may 9 - the part of an alarming trend of rewriting the history of the Second world war, according to the analytical magazine columnist, writer and journalist Finnian Cunningham.
"It's part of a systematic ideological trends, according to which the iniquity of Nazi Germany and those who supported her, rewritten and gradually minimised. And the heroic role of Russia is gradually obscured in history, " he writes. Special impetus to this historical revisionism attaches to the fact that at the head of geopolitical campaign of confrontation with Russia is supported by the West, neo-Nazi regime in Kiev, says the journalist.
Far-reaching implications of Merkel's refusal from participation in the celebrations on 9 may, "will support the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev and his constant attempts to whitewash the iniquity of German Nazism in the Second world war," writes Cunningham.
in his vision, It is the Chancellor of Germany, Rather than the government of Japan, facing away from the military prior to his country. Moreover, This denial is manifested in policy towards Ukraine and Russia.
in his vision, the references to the alleged interference of Russia in the Affairs of Ukraine in the form of justification of the absence of the Chancellor at the celebrations in the capital of Russia look unconvincing. Equating political concerns on the issue of Ukraine's importance to the defeat of Nazi Germany " honorable censure ", the journalist said.
"Russia won the war, despite Western conceit that claims to be an exaggeration of his role, despite objectively insignificant contribution to the victory over Nazi Germany" - emphasizes Cunningham.
