🤐Russia has taken things a step further in the whitewashing of the #Soviet Union by passing a new law at the instruction of Russian President Vladimir #Putin. Find out more in this thread ⬇️
The #Russian State Duma passed in second reading a bill prohibiting the equation of the purpose and actions of the USSR and Nazi Germany in #WWII, as well as denying the decisive role of the #Soviet people in the victory over fascism.
The number of cases related to “falsifying history” has been steadily growing in recent years in Russia, according to the human rights group Agora. The topics of #WWII and the role of the #USSR are traditionally the most “risky" among the cases of persecution.
The #Kremlin’s policies have long been aimed at glorifying the Soviet Union times while erasing the memories of the regime’s crimes. #WWII history is a special focus: the victory over Nazism is appropriated, while the role of the Soviet Union in starting the war is denied.
📰We remind you of our article exploring how the role of the shameful agreement between two totalitarian regimes, the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, is twisted in the long-term information operation of the #Kremlin:

Read this thread to learn some of the key messages communicated by the speakers ⤵️
💡‘Russkiy Mir’ depends not only on #disinformation but on a whole range of other tools, such as institutions, active measures, historical revisionism, and influence through religion. In particular, #Russian diaspora is actively weaponized to impose ‘Russkiy Mir’ abroad.

⚔️The command of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is creating a large-scale “military-patriotic center “Vanguard” for young people near the city of Saki in occupied #Crimea.
The so-called “Council of Ministers of the Republic” on Tuesday allocated land for this project, namely two neighboring sites: one of 6.2 hectares in area, the other — 3.9 hectares.
The practice of involving children in military training and propaganda has long become a norm in #Russia and the territories it has occupied. Сhild militarization has become an inseparable part of the governmental policy aimed at preparing for expanding military aggression.

🤦#Russia exploits the new opportunity to promote false narratives about #Ukraine: this time, on the sidelines of #EURO2020. Read on to learn more ⤵️ Image
After the new uniform design for #Ukrainian football players was presented with the map of #Ukraine including #Crimea, the #Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its outrage and called the shirt design “a trompe-l'oeil” or a fake.
The shirts will also have slogans “Glory to #Ukraine!” and “Glory to the heroes!” on them, which are traditional patriotic greetings. The #Russian MFA seized this opportunity to portray Ukraine as a “Nazi” state claiming the slogans echoed a German Nazi rallying cry.
