The International Antifascist Congress, organized by the Russian Defense Ministry, opened in Patriot Park near Moscow in Kubinka.

The event takes place within the framework of the Army-2022 forum; Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced it in March. The declared objective of the International Anti-Fascist Congress is to unite the efforts of the international community in the fight against the ideology of Nazism “in whatever form of its manifestation in the modern world”. The congress is also seen as a platform “for supporting the historical truth about the decisive contribution of the USSR to the defeat of fascism in World War II”, writing RIA Novosti.

In early August, it was reported that 72 “friendly countries” had been invited to attend the congress. It is unclear whether anyone accepted the invitation: no specific country or name was mentioned in state media or in official Department of Defense press releases about the opening of the event.

Shoigu was one of the speakers at the first meeting of the International Antifascist Congress. That’s what he said.

  • The Russophobic idea of ​​banning Russian citizens from entering the European Union clearly manifests Nazi policy.
  • The basic principles of the Nuremberg Tribunal are increasingly being revised by countries, especially the Baltic States. Monuments are erected in Estonia and Latvia to war criminals.
  • One of the main factors that led to World War II was the Anglo-American business community’s cooperation with the Nazis.
  • The decision to conduct a “special operation” was made due to unacceptable threats to Russian security.

Other speakers at the meeting included State Duma Deputy Speaker Irina Yarovaya. In particular, she stated that the United States “is the entity that finances Nazism in the world” and that the Pentagon is creating hundreds of secret military labs around the world, “To pursue the monstrous plans of Nazi Germany.” Yarovaya also said she would soon start working on a new bill to prevent the rehabilitation of Nazism. With its direct participation in the spring of 2021, the State Duma has already toughened the penalty under the corresponding criminal article.
