"Any attempt to distort history and shift the responsibility for WWII on to the Soviet Union is intolerable," said Russian President Putin on May 8 in an interview with a Russian TV broadcasting corporation.

The problem of rewriting history is related to internal strife in some countries, he said, adding that those who attempt to rewrite history are boosting the morale of their voters in such a way.

The Soviet Union won victory at the cost of its 27 million lives and the acts of those who try to distort history can never be justified, he noted.
