The recent statement of Mr. Yatsenyuk concerning «The Soviet troops` offensive on Ukraine» provokes nothing but the confusion and the feeling of indignation towards the degree of cynicism, which probably has become normal for the supreme state bodies of Ukraine.

Earlier the Ukrainian authorities allowed themselves to compare the Soviet Union with Nazi Germany, but such method as far as we understand, is rather old-fashioned. Such statements and historic «parallels» are absurd and insulting for millions of our compatriots from all over the world, they cause huge damage to all post-war world structure based on all-round adjudgment and fascism unacceptance.

We condemn strongly any efforts to rewrite history and create chaos in minds and in society`s world outlook. We would like to warn about the catastrophic consequences of such steps, first for the Ukrainian society.
