The American diplomat explained the meaning of the statement about the victory of the US and the UK over Nazism

White house statement on Victory Day in Europe that the United States together with great Britain defeated the Nazis, was addressed to the British allies of the United States, because it was not listed all of the victorious countries. This was stated by U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan in an interview with Russian TV channel RBC.

Video Victory Day was released by the White house on may 8. He caused outrage in Russia, calling such statements “disinformation campaign” aimed at belittling the role of the Soviet Union.

“I remember when this event happened and remember being appalled at the reaction to it. This is not an attempt to rewrite history, no mistake. A message appeared on Twitter, was addressed to our British allies,” said Sullivan.

He recalled the close cooperation of the two countries during the Second world war. “Millions” of Americans were stationed in the UK and then from its territory participated in the deployment, including the Normandy operation.

The diplomat stressed that the White house was not aimed to list all the countries which participated in the defeat of Nazi Germany.

“If that were the case, then I’m afraid I would have to apologize not only Russia but also Canada, free French forces, Polish squadrons in the air force of great Britain. This message does not mention many other countries,” said Sullivan.

He added that there is no other country that would suffer from the actions of the Nazis in the same way as the Soviet Union.
