Putin launches bid to rehabilitate Soviet legacy

Russian President Vladimir Putin attends a meeting with French Senate President at the Kremlin in Moscow on April 5, 2016Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday ordered the creation of a national foundation to “popularise” history, seen as the Kremlin’s latest bid to rehabilitate the Soviet legacy. The new Fatherland History Foundation comes as Russian historians who criticise the role of Stalin are often accused of disrespect for war veterans and can even be prosecuted under a 2014 law. The Soviet role in WWII, particularly its secret pact with Nazi Germany to partition eastern Europe, remains a thorny issue, and Moscow rejects all attempts to portray the Red Army as anything other than Europe’s liberator.
