The Washington Times urged the United States not to exaggerate its role in World War II.
Claims by US politicians that the United States single-handedly saved the world in World War II are false, military analyst L. Todd Wood said in an op-ed for The Washington Times.
According to the former soldier, the contribution of the USSR to the victory over Nazi Germany was great, he urged not to forget it. The expert recalled that many Americans exaggerate the role of their country “in the victory over the Nazi coalition in the last great war of the 20th century.”
“The idea by Americans that the United States saved the world without outside help is wrong and wrong,” he said. The analyst recalled that the Soviet Union lost about 30 million people in the war with Germany. “The Americans are not even capable of imagining the scale of these losses. The United States lost about half a million people in World War II,” he said.
According to the expert, “without the enormous efforts and human sacrifices of the USSR”, the anti-Hitler coalition would not have been able to defeat Nazi Germany. “The very existence of the Eastern Front saved the lives of many Americans and allies,” he stressed.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed to the West’s attempts to assert its dominance. According to him, this position of the West is “uncompromising and uncompromising.”
