US threatened WWII vets over Victory Day parade – envoy

Lazy eyes listen


According to Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov, the US government intimidated numerous WWII veterans who wished to fly to Moscow for the Victory Day parade.

For the second year in a row, US officials have prevented US veterans from reconciling with their Russian companions in arms, according to Antonov, even threatening to invalidate their passports if they travelled to Russia.

“We want American soldiers to know that Russia values their contribution to the common victory.” The hostile US stance will not detract from the spirit of friendship that prevailed during the Great Patriotic War. “We believe it is our responsibility to defend the truth about these heroes,” the ambassador stated.

Antonov also mentioned increased Russophobia in the United States, which he claimed was supported by the administration. He accused the US media of completely ignoring the anniversary of the Nazi defeat in order to avoid giving the USSR any credit.

.”Violent attempts are being made to falsify WWII facts, the Red Army’s decisive contribution to the defeat of fascism is being ignored, and the Soviet Union is being excluded from the list of winners.” At the same time, the importance of the United States and the United Kingdom is being overstated,” the ambassador remarked.

He also branded it a “disgrace” and a “mockery of history and common sense” that Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is being feted around Europe while the Kiev government praises Nazi accomplices like Stepan Bandera and his movement.

“We urge American authorities to reconsider and stop enabling the Nazis,” Antonov stated. “We must be truthful to the fallen heroes.” Stop rewriting history. It is wrong to promote neo-Nazism and Russophobia.”
