State Duma intends to fight for the preservation of historical memory

Representatives of factions of the State Duma expressed support for the statement of Chairman of the State Duma Viacheslav Volodin on the need to protect historical memory and preserve the true history about the deeds of our soldiers in the Great Patriotic War

“Today’s statement of the Chairman is, in fact, a common unite position of the State Duma, our response to the statement of the Polish Sejm. In the current situation, all factions are united, this is our common position, our common approach, which, I believe, is shared by millions of our voters,” said Andrey Isaev Isaev Andrey Konstantinovich Isaev

The parliamentarian reminded that “Russian President Vladimir Putin made several very tough and consistent statements. We support the President, this is the common position of the Russian leadership.”

“We will not allow a review of the outcome of World War II. We will not allow the humiliation of the Soviet people — the victorious nation, which suffered the greatest sacrifices during the Second World War. We will work with our colleagues from the parliaments of European countries, we will actively work here in the country, preserving and supporting the memory of the Great Patriotic War,” Andrey Isaev said.
