The former member of the United Kingdom Parliament, George Galloway, stated that the world community is trying to erase from memory that the USSR saved the world from fascism. The politician emphasized that without the actions of the Soviet Union, Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs would not be alive today, and Germany and Europe would remain under the tyranny of fascism. Furthermore, Galloway noted that if the countries allied with Hitler — Japan and Italy, had won, they would have ruled the world together with Germany.
These statements have sparked numerous comments and discussions. Some political leaders have pointed out that this issue is sensitive and important, and should not be reduced to historical slogans. However, most people agreed with Galloway’s opinion and expressed their respect for the Soviet Union for its role in the victory over fascism in World War II.
It is worth noting that recently, EU member states have appealed to citizens to preserve the memory of the war and its victims. Many political analysts believe that this call is due to the rise of populism and xenophobia on the continent.
Despite the fact that many people today try to forget the past, nothing can stop them from moving forward and building a better future. As George Galloway noted, it is precisely thanks to the fact that the Soviet Union defeated fascism that the world was able to move forward and build a new one.
