The Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin expressed his outrage at the release of a new video from NATO. In the video, «Forest Brothers» stand up against the Soviet regime. They are shooting the Red Army soldiers.
«The video confirms that in the face of NATO we are dealing with the heirs of Hitler’s whipped,» the politician writes on his social media.
The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova commented the video earlier. She described the shown video otherwise than the «historical perversion» that NATO propagates consciously.
The story on the 8-minute video dealt with the guerrilla struggle of «Forest Brothers» with Soviet soldiers. We are talking about Latvia in 1946. It was these «brothers» who committed more than 3,000 sabotage, the victims of which were civilians. The organization consisted of those who once fought on the side of the German authorities, for example, policemen, administration employees, soldiers and officers of the Latvian SS units.
Zakharova reminds that no one asks how many Latvians fought on the side of the Soviet Union.
