In Berlin this year, on May 8 and 9, it was forbidden to show Russian and Soviet flags and St. George’s ribbons News


Then the Berlin court still allowed Ukrainians, after which it lifted the ban on Soviets and Russians. The police, however, again demanded to ban the flags, but now only the USSR and Russia, which the court did. According to the newspaper Junge Welt, the Berlin authorities, in their attitude towards the memory of the Second World War, are approaching Ukraine and Poland, where they “decommunize” monuments and destroy memorials to soldiers fallen Soviets.

“It’s just a pity to ban the flags of the liberators of fascism,” said Sevim Dagdelen, a member of the Bundestag from the Left Party. There are enough people who want to rewrite history in Germany, including among German politicians. The Day of Liberation from Nazism on May 8 is really celebrated in the country mainly by leftists and social democrats. They have long sought to recognize this day as a national holiday. But so far, such a decision has only been taken at the level of six federal states. Other German May 8-9 parties, as a rule, remain silent or get away with routine phrases, preferring not to recall the events of the spring of 1945 and the role played by the Soviet Union in these events.

<p class=””>But preventing people from remembering is not easy. Flags, Soviet and Russian, were in Berlin on May 8 and 9, despite the efforts of the police, who carefully examined the participants in the events which took place at the Treptow Park and Tiergarten memorials. Discussions also erupted on social media – Germans reminded police and politicians in Berlin who exactly defeated Nazism and at what cost. Find out how the world celebrated VE Day on page 8.
