“75 years have passed, but the truth about the war has not been fully revealed. Many people prefer to keep silent or retouch it, justifying the choice that was once made,” said Andrey Belyaninov, Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly.


He spoke about this at the opening of the International Public Forum “Preserving the Memory of World War II and the Great Patriotic War”, held on September 3, 2020 in the Vorontsov Palace (Alupka, Crimea, Russia): “To reveal the truth about the war is our historical duty. Declassified documents that reveal the facts of the crimes of the Nazis and their minions against humanity should become the property of historians and the public. We must join forces to defend the sacred memory of our ancestors, to prevent the derogatory desire of certain political forces to shield the true culprits of the war, to downplay the role of the USSR in the defeat of Nazism.

Despite the difficulties of the pandemic, the 5th session of the forum entitled "Protect the truth about Victory!" was held with the support of the Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov and is designed to solve the problem of finding new practices for the formation of constructive and constructive images of the memory of the Victory over fascism, which help to strengthen mutual understanding and peaceful relations between countries and peoples.

Historians, scientists, documentary filmmakers, public and political figures took part in the discussion of the causes and lessons of the Second World War, the importance of attracting the attention of the general public of the CIS and Baltic countries to the issues of preserving historical memory, countering attempts to rehabilitate Nazism from Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Uzbekistan and Ecuador.

“The Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly sets itself the goal of not only actively counteracting the distortion of history about the Second World War and the Great Patriotic War and preserving the historical memory of those heroes who defended peace at the cost of their own lives,” Andrey Belyaninov told the forum participants. - Based on the diversity of cultures and peoples, their spiritual and moral foundations, the common sense of the intrinsic value of human life for all, we support and promote public and state initiatives aimed at maintaining peace throughout the world. Our common task is to establish peace on the planet with the whole world!”

According to the organizers of the International Public Forum, which is an important component The Eurasian Peoples together for the sake of peace and creation”, it will continue to develop as a practical platform for organizing a set of measures aimed at preserving historical and spiritual lessons about the greatest tragedy of the 20th century, forming constructive and creative images of memory about it, contributing to strengthening mutual understanding and peaceful relations between countries and peoples.
