As much, a I support Russia and Mr Putin., in their right on Crimea and the Russian people of Ukraine. As much I have to criticize this law draft! It is not helpful at all! Condemning the Germans of all crimes, even if they have not done`it! and promoting therefor crimes carried out by Russia (Soviet). Example is Katyn Forrest, where all together about 25.000 Polish Officers and civilians where butchered by Russians! Only the TRUTH about the war, the full truth will bring peace! Every clearly thinking person is aware, that the Nuremberg Tribunal is nothing, but a big revenge farce, as the ICC is today!!!

Seeing that the United States has based it's importance to Europe of the false claim it won WW11 there will be an American backlash as they must defend their propaganda
or face looking completely criminal, which they assuredly are. This is a positive move for Russia to do, especially considering US power is based on so many lies at Europe's expense. America has intended to take Europe down since they set up the Union. Sorry to read so many who would immediately help them.

A bad move, the truth leaks out ....... always.

In medieval Britain any questioning of events, or the Kings actions were crushed in the same way ... well ever harsher !

That didn't stop the wandering minstrels singing coded songs of the truth.

Hono ur the war dead of Russia yes, but this is a bad move, and will lead to repression and trouble for Mr. Putin.
Thats a shame, hes done so much good, but this will drag him down within 7 years.

Sad to say Mr Putin is running a course of action in Eastern Ukraine and Crimea (which do have Russian descendants and language) very much like Nazi Germany in 1938/9 in the Danzig corridor and Poland.
Of course, at that time you Russians supported them. What goes around comes around.........

'

It would also mean that Russia endorses the firebombing of whole cities of civilians, and post war deliberate starvation of millions of civilians & surrendered soldiers.

  


Where and when are you refering to ?

Russian media are spending a lot of time stirring up fear of Nazism everywhere as an excuse to invade other countries, much like the USA and the WMDs fear.

  


Ho w are the two similar ?
There are *actual* neo-Nazis in power in Ukraine but the WMD was just another in an endless list of lies/false flags used by the USNATO ?or so called "International community" ie.Nato.

If this is correct, it would mean that Russia endorses the use of perjury, torture & rigged evidence as the basis of truth, which is what USA did at Nuremburg.

  


Did we forget that the Soviet Union participated in the Nuremburg prosecutions? If what you are saying is true, then the Soviets were guilty of evidence fabrication too.

Perhaps this new law will banish any evidence that reveals what really happened, such as this one little piece of evidence:
Nazi Germany had a special court,
"Int ended to enable prominent party members to rid themselves of the stigma of Jewish ancestry,"
Law of April 12, 1938 (Reichsgestzblatt I, 386)
Encyclopedi a Britanica 1953, Page 219C Vol. 10

'Once the bill is signed into law it will become illegal to publicly deny the Nuremberg Tribunal verdict and the anti-Hitler coalition’s effort to defend international peace and security during the Second World War.'
If this is correct, it would mean that Russia endorses the use of perjury, torture & rigged evidence as the basis of truth, which is what USA did at Nuremburg.
