Noting that in 2020 the world marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the most brutal global armed conflict in the history of humanity, which claimed tens of millions of lives, the Seimas invited the global academic community and civil society to continue investigating the crimes against humanity committed by totalitarian regimes, examine historical facts and spread the truth to prevent any tragedies of this scale from happening ever again, the Seimas’ press office reported.

At the same time, the Seimas called on the European Parliament, the parliaments of Central and Eastern European countries, international organisations, and the international community to refrain from condoning, and jointly oppose, the historical revisionism and disinformation perpetrated by the Russian Federation.

The adopted document stresses that ‘the historical revisionism and disinformation employed by the Russian Federation are also intended to justify the current aggressive policies and aggression of this country against its neighbouring countries, foster distrust in the Western community, and divide the European Union and NATO’.

The Resolution expresses respect for those who fought against Nazism and condemns the historical revisionism and disinformation that the Russian Federation has employed to deny the role of the Soviet Union, as one of the key instigators of World War II, in an effort to shift the blame on the victims of the aggression and justify the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and its secret protocols of 1939.
