“We want the whole country see the truth about the past so that in the future our country will be confident in her abilities”, Arsenii Yatseniuk underscored during the presentation of videos at session of Organizing Committee on preparation and celebration of the 70th anniversary of Victory over Nazism in Europe. These historical movies have been made on the initiative of the Ukrainian Government.
He noted that the decision to make these videos was designed to show the truth: “To show the truth that Ukraine is a winner country, that Ukrainians on different fronts fought against Nazism, that without Ukraine this victory would not be. And to honor the millions of Ukrainians that we overcame this terrible plague. To instill trust and confidence in Ukraine, that we won at that time – and we will win now”.
In the videos, made upon the initiative of the Government of Ukraine, there are stories about the Ukrainians who fought in different armies of the Second World War.
One of the video is dedicated to legendary intelligence man, the prototype of the hero of Semenov’s novel “Major Vykhr” (“Major Whirlwind”), Hero of Ukraine Yevhen Berezniak who saved the ancient Polish city of Krakiv from destruction by Nazis.
During the presentation, Arsenii Petrovych expressed gratitude to the Head of the Ukrainian Memorial Institute Volodymyr Viatrovych and famous Ukrainian director Les Sanin “for the fact that by our joint initiative, historical movies about the role and place of Ukraine as a winner country in the Second World War finally have been made”.
