Putin reminds the world who saved the globe from Nazism

Russian President Vladimir Putin penned an article Be open despite the past for the German weekly Die Zeit. The article is dedicated to the 80th anniversary since the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. The Russian translation of the article was posted on the official website of the Kremlin.
Vladimir Putin wrote that the Great Patriotic War was the most violent conflict in Russian history that claimed the lives of tens of millions of people, and caused overwhelming damage to economy and cultural heritage.
“We are proud of the courage and resilience of the heroes of the Red Army and front workers, who not only defended the independence and dignity of the Motherland, but also saved Europe and the world from enslavement,” Putin wrote.
