A gesture to please the defeated: in the 90s, the truth about the war with Japan was deleted from textbooks

Japan has a new prime minister. Shinzo Abe, who swore an oath to "return the islands", resigned, citing his health condition, after which he said that in 2018 "Tokyo and Moscow were very close to signing a peace treaty."


The topic of the Kuril Islands continues to be actively raised in the Japanese press and under the new head of the cabinet. It is also important to note the fact that American media giants are exploiting this topic in a very peculiar way. You can note how accounts are blocked or individual information is deleted, in which the Kuriles are marked as Russian territory. This can be regarded not just as episodes of information pressure on Russia, but also as an attempt to reconsider the results of World War II.

Many Japanese media are trying to follow the same path, where it is stubbornly asserted that “Stalin seized the islands illegally”, that “the USSR violated the non-aggression pact signed in 1941”. At the same time, Japan ignores an important fact: by the time the Red Army started fighting against Japan, Moscow had already withdrawn from that treaty for several months. It is unlikely that Japanese historians do not know about this.

On The Day channel, the doctor talks about those events in detail. historical Sciences Anatoly Koshkin. In particular, the issue of how they tried to distort the historical truth not only in Japan, but also in our country is considered. In the Yeltsin era, in the 90s, important facts about the Soviet-Japanese war were removed from history textbooks, which can be regarded as a gesture to please the defeated. Some historians believe that Yeltsin was already ready to transfer the Kuril Islands to Tokyo's jurisdiction.

    I studied in the 90s. I graduated from high school in 1991. In our history lessons, no one forgot this topic. What was, what was. But, it is true, we were lucky with the historian. Although he was young, he was very educated and, as they would say now, liberal enough - he was not afraid to answer inconvenient (historically) questions, he considered various versions of certain events.

      I studied in 60-70 years. They taught about the Second World War in detail, considering each battle.
      Briefly about the war with Japan.
      This was the curriculum, and the teacher could not really change it. She (the war) did not play such a role anymore, it was clear that victory was not far off, and she got less blood than the war with Germany

        War nullifies all treaties.
        As a result of the Second World War, all Kuril Islands belong to Russia. Japan's position on this issue does not give a damn. If they so want these islands, they can declare war on Russia and burn alive from nuclear attacks by our missiles on their cities.

      Kreder's textbook on Contemporary History, carefully transferred to all school libraries in the 90s, for example, says that Russia is to blame for unleashing the 1904-1905 war ... And this despite the fact that the whole country knew and remembered the cruiser's feat " Varyag "and who really started this war ... By the way, now children learn about" Varyag "only in the 10th grade ... And it's much easier to screw up their brains ...

            Googling the request for an educationless clique, Korean concessions, Romanov and Korean concessions, and a lot will become clear to you. Any war is primarily based on economic interests. However, the feat of the crew of the cruiser Varyag and the gunboat Koreets does not diminish all this in any way.

              So what?
              As it was written about this situation - ONE OF THE REASONS, as well as, it is also written there - IN PURPOSE OF EXPORTING JAPAN FROM THE TERRITORY OF KOREA.
              That is, finding Japan on the border with Russia should be regarded only from the point of view of a humanitarian mission, which will shower RI exclusively with gifts?
              The emperor of Japan was asleep and saw the Japanese army throwing roses in the Far East. Yeah.
              Just as now, NATO bases around Russia are being scattered solely for humanistic reasons.

        I downloaded this tutorial to check your words. There is no such thing. You are deceiving, you are also made up of pluses by people who believe in your word. After the introduction of peace at the beginning of the 20th century, there have been events since 1914. There are two references to the Russian-Japanese war and not a single accusation.

          I will add that the author apparently confused it with Soviet textbooks, this is where Russia was accused of all mortal sins. I opened at random a 1982 textbook for 9 grades. there is such Vlasovism. It's like in the case of Hitler's victory, the Vlasovites would write that Vlasov exposed Stalin's disastrous policy and wished defeat for the Soviet government. Ugh, an abomination, and this was taught to children.

      I graduated from school exactly 20 years before you from a completely ordinary teacher. Everything was in its place. I think that the topic today is deliberately pedaling just to attract attention. Today's youth all over the world are stupid and apolitical, but they readily bite at strawberries like “they hid it from us”.
      As for Japan, the matter is clear. Today they are cramped, the land is needed for life, and not for imperial show-offs.
      80 years have passed and today it is difficult for young people to explain why the neighboring country is holding its depressed and subsidized regions with its teeth.

            What?
            Now young people believe any well-promoted blogger, even if he is promoting one lie. Varlamov and Dud are a striking example of this. Check out the comments on their blogs. Now it is much easier to fool and ordinary people find it difficult to understand the gigantic heap of lies and propaganda.

          Do not judge by your own, it is not objective and harmful. The whole world lives by the same rules, where the government's fooling people has become a goal, due to the fact that it is easier to manage illiterate people. The USE is a vivid example of this. And the judgment of the general trend for a small circle of their children and their friends does not at all reflect the general picture of the world. Ask them about what people of our generation knew, for example, who is Maresyev, or Poddubny, Chaliapin, ....

        Why are we? I put a 12-year-old granddaughter from Nakhimov next to me and turned on the film "Varyag" for viewing, talked with him after the film. Similarly - "Officers", "Sea character", etc. etc. So he can not only verbally enlighten "strawberries".

    The guys are actively pumping conventional muscles. Of course, it makes no sense for us to compete with them, but the "nuclear-free" option needs to be heated up. The presence of such a "variant" cools small local attacks and lowers the threshold of a defense reaction. On every occasion, you cannot become an "avant-garde". So the fleet, BO, air defense, aerospace forces, all this is within reasonable limits, but in sufficient volume. Japs are not good neighbors for us, the PRC is not so hot ...

    The Japanese need to understand that Japan should become a peaceful state, and the Japanese - a peaceful people. Perhaps there will be a time on planet Earth when countries and peoples will live in peace and friendship, not thinking about the belonging of this or that living space. It's good if there are Japanese in this future.
    The Kuril Islands are the territory of Russia and to raise the question of their ownership every day is a violation of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

    The topic of the Kuril Islands continues to be actively raised in the Japanese press and under the new head of the cabinet.
    The main thing in this matter is to remain coldly calm. The island theme is constantly used by Japanese political parties. The Japanese Communist Party is especially strong in this theme / yes, yes. There is one, but they are very specific communists, to say the least ... Apparently Fujiyama and geese in the sky influence the psyche and politics of the Japanese so much. How did Mark Bernes sing there? When did I finish my long voyages,
    When I had finished swimming far,
    That kissed granite on the piers -
    Kissing granite piers -
    In my native Crimea and Vladivostok, I, in tears,
    In his native Crimea and in Vladivostok I'm in tears,
    Eh, smoked
    Oh, I passed
    Oh, on the Kuril Islands
    Oh, and the Kuril Islands in the far,
    On our farthest islands.
    On the most distant of our Islands.

    The military, if they are real, always draw plans and schedules, they are obliged to do this. request It is up to politicians to identify the primary enemy and make a decision.
    Capturing part of Siberia was possible, but what would Japan get? Huge territories and ..... practically everything. Oil from Sakhalin 1 mln. barrel. / year they already took away.
    In 1939-40. The United States imposed an embargo on oil supplies to Japan. And Japan had only one way, to Indonesia, well, so around on trifles.

    He finished 11 classes in 1993. Our "history teacher" did not care about any events. Now there are already many "voice assistants" who can read the text. Our "history teacher" was one of those. Fortunately, there were others. Tamara Georgievna is a French teacher and our class teacher. Raisa Ivanovna is an algebra teacher. She instilled in me a respect for systems analysis. Larisa Ivanovna is a teacher of Russian language and literature, who put records for us in literature lessons, which, in her opinion, were suitable for the studied work. I really respect these people. I also respect many of my college teachers. In the spring, I went to the anniversary of Alexander Semyonovich - he was exactly 100 years old.

    The Kuril Islands are of strategic importance - they are a natural fortress wall covering the Russian Far East. Even if four islands are transferred to Japan, American military bases will immediately appear there. And you don’t have to assure us that we can agree so that they do not appear. The Americans have repeatedly proved that they comply with all kinds of persuasion-agreements only as long as it is beneficial to them. So the question of the ownership of the Kuril Islands by Russia should be closed and not even discussed. And let the Japanese at least discuss themselves inside.
