Putin urged to preserve historical memory
"When you talk about the need to preserve historical memory, I have already said: I fully support this, we will do it at the state level, we will do it persistently, including so that nothing happens again," Putin said at a meeting with veterans of the Great Patriotic War and the blockade. According to the president, many things are really forgotten. "Maybe I will say an unusual thing, although there is nothing unusual here.
This is some kind of protective mechanism of nature we have. A person forgets everything bad very quickly. The new generation already perceives everything that happened before the birth of a person, some historical events, (as) that have nothing to do with him anymore. And in order for a person to understand that this is not the case, we certainly need to do this," the head of state said.
