Statement by the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky on the equal responsibility of Russia and Nazi Germany for The Second World War was a huge mistake and greatly offended the Russian leader Vladimir Putin , the press said -secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov . He is quoted by ” Moskovsky Komsomolets ” citing VGTRK .
Peskov noted that such a mistake was made precisely in the year of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in World War II. This, according to him, “severely cut the heart” not only of the president, but also of veterans of all countries of the former USSR.
Earlier, during his working visit to Poland, Vladimir Zelensky declared about equal guilt Nazi Germany and the USSR in the outbreak of World War II. The President added that Poland was the first to experience the “collusion of totalitarian regimes.” The Kremlin noted that the head of the Ukrainian state is in solidarity with the point of view of the Polish leadership, which Moscow considers erroneous.
