The Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly Andrey Belyaninov sent a greeting to the participants of the round table “75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, attempts to falsify history, how to preserve the memory of the Great Patriotic War?” within the framework of the festival of documentary films of the CIS countries "Eurasia.DOC".

The greeting, in particular, says:

- At present, attempts to falsify and deheroize the history of World War II and the Great Patriotic War have become more frequent, belittling the heroic deeds, the decisive role and contribution of the peoples of the Soviet Union to the victory over fascism . To oppose this direction of thoughts and actions is one of the tasks that the festival sets and solves with the help of documentary films. Proof of this is the round table in which you are taking part today.

75 years have passed, but the truth about the war has not been fully revealed. Many prefer to keep silent or retouch it. Revealing the truth about the war is our historical duty. Declassified documents and documentary footage testifying to the crimes of the Nazis and their minions against humanity and to the heroism and mutual support of the peoples of Eurasia in the face of the terrible war should become the property of historians and the public. We must join forces to defend the sacred memory of our ancestors, to prevent the pejorative desire of individual political forces to shield the true culprits of the war, to downplay the role of the USSR in the defeat of Nazism.

The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly is an international non-governmental organization that aims to form a social integration model in the name of establishing peace and harmony through the development of multilateral cooperation and public (people's) diplomacy. Currently, the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly unites representatives of more than 40 countries. During all three years of our existence, we paid great attention in our activities to the preservation of historical memory. In the year of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, we combined our events dedicated to this topic into an International megaproject called   in the name of peace and creation”. It includes international public forums on preserving the historical memory of World War II and the Great Patriotic War;  Sevastopol International Festival of Documentary Films and TV Programs “We Won Together”, international commemorative events in honor of the significant events of World War II and the Great Patriotic War and other events.

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 the world at the cost of their own lives. Based on the diversity of cultures and peoples, their spiritual and moral foundations, the common sense of the intrinsic value of human life, we support and promote public and state initiatives aimed at preservation of world peace. Our common task is to establish peace on the planet with the whole world!

I am glad that in your person we have acquired new friends and like-minded people today, and I invite you all to participate in the events of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly.

I sincerely wish all the participants of the Eurasia.DOC festival creative success, bright discoveries, spiritual meetings, inspiration and high achievements in the noble cause of preserving peace and truth.
