German media “the last place” have the right to criticize the actions of the Russian Federation when it comes to memory of the Second world war, I think both MPs and ordinary people. According to them, the lifting of the blockade is the first triumphant day in the history of St. Petersburg and is equivalent to the parades in honor of may 9.
The journalist of the German newspaper S?ddeutsche Zeitung outraged by the celebration of the 75th anniversary of lifting the siege of Leningrad. In her opinion, the glorification of the victims of the blockade threat. The article, entitled “Moscow is abusing the memory of Leningrad” Silke Herr Bigalke, recalls that this Sunday in St. Petersburg will host the military parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of lifting the blockade. According to her, the celebrations are inappropriate when we are talking about large-scale tragedy.
According to the journalist, “those who are in power in Moscow,” it is not necessary to abuse this tragedy in our own history, and even more so to hold a parade in his honor. This publication caused a rather sharp reaction in Russia, as, in the opinion of MPs and ordinary Russians, Germany could not criticize a country for the glorification of his own victory when she was the attacker and the losing side. Of course, the parade is not aimed at inciting ethnic hatred, but this article is simply unacceptable for such a celebration, because the parade is not in honor of the blockade, and after removing it and this is a big victory for the residents of St. Petersburg, because the statements of Belgica inappropriate and stupid in this context.
Analysts also believe that due to the criticism of the Russian parade in honor of lifting the siege of Leningrad Germany is trying to forget the years of the Third Reich and the atrocities of Adolf Hitler, who pursued their national idea. Thus, according to them, the Germans in the years after the Second world war carefully concealed its crimes against his people and therefore once even expelled a researcher who tried to expose the truth about Nazi Germany and the population of their small town. It is literally hated, but the woman fled and is still published their work.
Thus, Germany, apparently, tries not to remember the genocide of another people, and such parades only “reopen old wounds”. However, it is understood that Ross is indeed a Great victory and the memory of it will remain for many years.
