The increased risk of the spread of neo-Nazism is linked with attempts to rewrite the history of World War II, Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Stanislav Zas said in an interview to the RT TV channel on 8 October, BelTA has learned.
“We should not underestimate the danger of neo-Nazism,” he stressed. “The CSTO is carrying out certain work [to prevent the spread of neo-Nazism] that is coupled with efforts to defend the truth about the Great Patriotic War and foil attempts to distort the history,” Stanislav Zas noted.
According to him, there are neo-Nazis in every country. “There might be only a handful of them, but nevertheless. We need to take this into account in our work,” he said.
“Reevaluating the outcome of World War II is dangerous, because we not only cast doubt on the feat of our ancestors, but also create conditions for dismantling the system built by the countries-victors. To my mind, these things are inter-connected, we should understand this,” Stanislav Zas believes.
