In Latvia, wished to demolish the monument to Soviet soldiers

In Latvia, wished to demolish the monument to Soviet soldiers

Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks said that, in his opinion, the Victory Monument in Riga, erected in honor of Soviet soldiers after World War II, must be torn down. In addition, the politician said that he was hurt by the way Russians are celebrating May 9 in Riga.

"The so-called Victory Monument in Riga is a symbol that is not connected with graves, but has gained a great deal of political weight. Despite the fact that, from a moral point of view, the monument must be demolished, such an act would have too many dangerous consequences," the minister said .

Pabriks also spoke on the celebration of Victory Day. "The purpose of the majority of participants in this event is not to commemorate the victims of World War II, but to keep us in the geopolitical sphere that 20 ceased to exist years ago ... Well, remember your own people - this cannot be forbidden, but not you need to oppose them to the state in which you live.When Russian 9 youth May drives about cars with the inscriptions “To Berlin!”, what should the representative of the younger generation of Germans think? What should Germany think - Russia's strategic partner? " - the minister asked questions.

According to him, he would also be glad if the initiative of President Andris Berzins to reconcile the soldiers who fought on different sides of the front was a success. “But we cannot reduce this reconciliation only to the notion of“ legionaries against the Red Army men. ”It concerns integration, ethnic, language policy, and international relations. I think there are politicians, including Russia, who do not want such reconciliation see. If we want reconciliation, then we need to fold weapon and leave fallen soldiers alone, " quotes the Latvian Minister of Defense.

Meanwhile, the mayor of Riga, Nil Ushakov, responded to the statement by Pabriks, comparing the Minister of Defense with Sharikov. "The stupidity of the universal scale," - said the professor Preobrazhensky about individual statements about the life of Comrade Sharikov. In Latvia, the Sharikovs are not strangling cats, but are headed by the ministries of defense, ”the Ushakova portal quotes the Russian community in Estonia.

Note that at a time when some politicians are against celebrating the victory over Nazi Germany in Latvia, every year on March 16, the country celebrates the Day of Remembrance of Legionnaires - fighters of the Latvian Volunteer Legion, which was part of the SS forces. On March 16, 1944, the Latvian 15 and 19 divisions in the SS participated in combat operations against the advancing Soviet forces near Leningrad. However, in the fall, the Red Army liberated the entire Baltic region from the Nazi occupation, Izvestia writes.

    And all ... stop buying their idiotic sprats ... but in general stop importing Baltic goods into the country ..... tighten the nuts to the limit.

    These Baltic fascists got .... already there is no evil at them.

    They look like a hysterical woman.
    our silence and indifference does not calm them, but more and more inflames them.

    At this rate, in 10 years, concentration camps will be created in the Baltic States, where all Russians will be imprisoned as "descendants of the occupiers"

    Choke up the Baltic states so that I could not breathe.

    The complex of a small pipiska does not allow a proud and "independent" Latvia to live in peace. My dog ​​is small and vicious, it rushes and tries to bite not because of the aggression in the genes, but from fear and helplessness. This horror sits already in the crust of the subconscious, nothing can be etched away. It is absorbed with mother's milk. She will never understand that a normal dog simply does not notice her. But in reality, terminate all economic relations with these banana striped republics. The European Union does not need these freeloaders for a long time, they will drive them out like mangy dogs.

    Such a statement by the Ministry of Defense of Latvia:
    - This means recognizing that the moral and ethical foundations of the state are below the plinth.
    - This means recognizing that fascism is alive in the minds of the rulers of the state (not the people).

    Such facts cannot be left without reaction.
    Why is the Russian Foreign Ministry not starting an informational and diplomatic scandal throughout Europe? How many times have they shown that they are loyal to fascism? Dofiga. The Germans must be set against them so that they kick them.
    Why not introduce at least a minimum of economic sanctions? Yes, at least for one type of product, in order to show YOUR reaction (and do it in front of Europe). To show that with impunity nothing will remain.

    You look, the jackal will think next time whether he should blather or not .... Rot.

    What kind of reconciliation can be with former SS legionnaires who fought on the side of Nazi Germany? Now these old men, celebrating the day of the creation of the legion every year, did not realize that they were not fighting for the freedom of Latvia. In fact, these are punitive and executioners. And what would happen to Latvia if fascist Germany won the war. In today's Europe, Latvia is somewhere in the margins.

You are without family, without a tribe (tsu stegan taipa tukhkam a dats), since you allow yourself such things. Although "you allow" is a strong saying. A mongrel on a leash can only afford anything, except to yapping to please his master in order to work out a sniffed bone. I'm crap! The Germans have learned their lesson and do not bother with revanchism, and these miscarriages of HISTORY are trying to portray something of themselves.
