We have the opportunity to raise noble and humanly just topics. We cannot be silent about this, and let us not be silent. We do not need success, we need historical justice to prevail.”

“I am glad that the signing took place. It is a great honor for us, but also a great responsibility. We are at the beginning of a long journey. And we have a specific goal. This goal is to have the genocide of the peoples of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany recognized at the state level. Unfortunately, no such recognition has taken place so far. Moreover, part of our public denies the very fact of the genocide. Crimes committed in the occupied territories of the Soviet Union are declared excesses, war crimes, but by no means genocide, by no means the result of the targeted, planned extermination of citizens of the USSR. Our task is to dispel all doubts and achieve recognition of the genocide at the state level. I think that this task is within our power, and I am very glad to find such colleagues and associates in this noble cause,” said Yegor Yakovlev, Director of the Digital History Foundation, for his part.
