Here war is constantly regarded as a never-ending heroics . As said one of reasonable British politicians: in war there are no favorites, only losers. Since the war, much less this magnitude is always a disaster. And we ascend it, I would designate as dancing on the bones during pompous festivals. And doctrine so that the whole world should be thanking us, particularly in Belarus, we are one, say, who freed Europe from Nazism. Completely fake approach to the second World War. "
