MINSK, 21 April (BelTA) - The West is trying to erase from history everything that is associated with Russia, Belarus and the Soviet Union, Aleksei Avdonin, an analyst with the Belarusian Institute of Strategic Research (BISR), said on the air of the Alpha Radio on 21 April, BelTA cited as saying.

“The authorities in the West deliberately distort the whole history. What do they do it for? Their school history textbooks do not mention the fact that Vienna and the prisoners of Austrian concentration camps were liberated by the Red Army soldiers during World War II. Their textbooks say that this was done by either the British or the Americans. The West cannot allow their model of history to become different. They do not want to mention Belarus, Russia and everything connected with the Soviet Union,” said Aleksei Avdonin.

He commented on the non-invitation of the delegations of Belarus and Russia by Western European states on the eve of the commemoration ceremony in Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria. “We were not invited on purpose. They said it was done for the sake of freedom and peace. The current policy that is pursued by Western countries however may cause new concentration camps, Fuhrers and SS units in Europe. People in Europe are already being segmented. The next step will be the creation of concentration camps. Who will save them from this? The United States or the UK? No, because it is these countries that promote Nazi ideology. They learned nothing from the lessons of World War II,” the expert said.
