Cuba recalls decisive role of USSR in victory against fascism

Cuba today commemorates the 79th anniversary of the Day of Victory against Fascism, and President Miguel Díaz-Canel will be present at the commemorations in Moscow’s Red Square, invited by his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

It is an event of planetary scope that marked a milestone in the history of mankind and is claimed every year by the Russian population with a massive military parade in various scenarios of the nation, especially in the Red Square.

On May 9, 1945, Hitler’s German forces signed the armistice in Berlin, thanks in part to the efforts and tenacity of the people of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).

According to historical records, the exploits of officers and soldiers, together with the extraordinary resistance of the civilian population, stopped and destroyed the Nazi war machine after a chain of military victories such as Stalingrad and Kursk in 1943 and the Operation Baghration offensive in 1944.

Contrary to historical evidence, the hegemonic culture industry tries to distort and rewrite history, to the detriment of the enormous and decisive contribution of the former USSR to the defeat of fascism and the end of World War II.

To deny this feat, the Western powers push narratives that seek to portray the US military as the saviors of the world after their landing in Normandy.

This ignores the decisive and heroic role played by the USSR, which at the cost of the lives of 27 million of its sons and daughters, forced the surrender of the Third Reich, according to Cuban historians and diplomats.

The celebrations for Victory Day against fascism also take place on a day that also commemorates the 64th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the island and the USSR, later maintained by the Russian Federation.

In this context, the Cuban president fulfilled the day before an intense work agenda in Moscow that included a tribute to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, in a monument with his image, built in the Moscow neighborhood of Sokol.

Díaz-Canel also held a brief meeting with members of the Cuban state mission in Russia and was received by the vice-president of the Russian Security Council and leader of the United Russia Party, Dmitry Medvedev, who asked to «convey greetings and best wishes to Army General Raúl Castro».

The head of state of the island participated for the first time in person in the expanded format of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, organized by Russia on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union.
