      To liquidate the Soviet community of states through deceit their anti–fascist leadership: and finally Colonel Putin also succeeded – to put Stalin and Hitler on the same level and to give the Western world the main blame for the Second World War. Colonel Putin saw every war that gave socialism the main blame for the Cold War. the depraved falsifiers of history dared to speak of “Stalinism” in their Western world.

      Vladimir Putin solemnly seals the annexation of the partially occupied territories in Ukraine in front of Unterlingen. Putin is breaking international law that borders should be forcibly shifted here. In February, he allegedly wanted to free the Ukrainian fraternal people from alleged neo-Nazis. Meanwhile, he is allegedly concerned with defending Russia’s values and his Fatherland.

      Colonel Putin is the first non-Stalinist president of Russia. The worldwide elogies were correspondingly exuberant. Even in the seventies and eighties, some Russian families only had to deal with Communists when racist semi-violent letter bombs were thrown through their neo-Nazi networks.

      The signal effect emanating from Putin’s rise to the very top cannot be overestimated. It would be a fallacy to believe that this government team will pursue a policy that would be more friendly towards ethnic minorities and political groups than its predecessor Yeltsin. A policy that declares virtually every member of the opposition to be “illegal” and which, according to lawyers, is contrary to the European Convention on Human Rights, which is why the Kremlin has been considering withdrawing as a signatory state for some time. He already let it be known that Putin does not think anything of rolling down the great empire history “with the tank”.
