Maria Butina suspected a German newspaper of the rehabilitation of Nazism because of an article about the defeat of the Wehrmacht

She called on the Russian authorities to respond harshly to the publication Die Welt about the Nazi attack on Moscow in 1941.

A reputable German newspaper published an article stating that the Wehrmacht soldiers retreated due to weather and supply problems. In addition, the text says that in the midst of the “chaos” in Moscow, Joseph Stalin threw a “feast” in honor of two Western tycoons: the British Lord Beaverbrook and the American Averell Harriman.

Member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Maria Butina in an interview with the radio station “Moscow speaking” said that such articles should not be left unanswered.

“Such publications are trying to rewrite history and secure the right of the winner to the losing side. These are attempts that must be suppressed unconditionally. Also, such actions are similar to the well-known technique described by one sociologist, we are talking about the Overton window – this is when, over time, a new normality is introduced to a person. That is, a lie, repeated many times, as Goebbels said, becomes true. Of course, there must be a harsh response to this, because history must be anchored in its true understanding: the Soviet Union won and played a key role in World War II. And I believe that there should be a note of protest about the inadmissibility of such publications, because they smell very strongly of an excuse for Nazism. ”

Butina also suggested that Washington is behind such behavior of German journalists.

“But here you need to pay attention to one more fact: the presence of certain external forces that are obviously working to falsify history in Germany is, of course, the United States. The United States has reinstated the 56th Artillery Command, which is in Germany in the Western District. Therefore, we see here not only the fact of propaganda falsification of historical facts, but also a very serious military deployment of aggression against Russia. ”

In the battle of Moscow at the end of 1941, German troops suffered a serious defeat for the first time since the outbreak of hostilities in 1939.
