No one in Russia will ever raise a question of reviewing decisions, related to the deprecation of Stalin personality cult, said Vyacheslav Svetlichniy, Consul General of the Russian Federation in Simferopol in an interview to BBC Ukraine.
More than two months have passed since previous Consul General Vladimir Andreyev resigned after his remarks about the first Crimean Tatar movie ‘Haytarma’ caused a scandal. Svetlichniy was appointed on the post instead.
New Consul General has an opposite opinion on the movie. “War was a terrible experience in lives of millions of people. Not all withstood such ordeal. There were heroes as well as traitors, including among Russians, Ukrainians and other ethnic groups. This movie is a movie about tragedy, about broken fates. Each of us decides for him/herself how he understands it. I regret that even after 70 years after the war, we still have to sort things out”, said Svetlichniy in the interview.
Svetlichniy also voiced the position of the Russian Federation in relation to crimes of the Stalin regime. “…I think that no one in Russia will ever raise a question of reviewing decisions, related to the deprecation of Stalin personality cult. Repressions, which swept representatives of Russian people and other ethnicities, living in our multi-national country were a terrible disaster. They are clearly condemned. …..All decisions on rehabilitations of victims of repression, deported people are taken. These acts are recognized a crime, and therefore there is no reason to discuss the revision of this position”, said the Consul.
