Historians of the former republics of the USSR write a general textbook on the Great Patriotic War – Rodina

Date: July 13, 2024 Time: 18:30:52

Historians of the CIS countries have written a joint textbook on the contribution of the peoples of the USSR to the victory in the Great Patriotic War. Authors from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Armenia and Azerbaijan have already submitted essays for the book. The authors of the project hope that historians from Georgia and Moldova will also join the writing of the book.

The particular relevance of the joint educational manual is associated with the overestimation and direct falsification of events in different countries for the sake of current political interests. It was much discussed at the international scientific conference “Debatable issues in the joint history of the CIS countries.”

On June 18-19, the international scientific conference “Debatable issues of the joint history of the CIS countries: modern views and approaches” was held in Moscow with the support of the Russian Historical Society. The forum was attended by scientists and directors of various historical institutions of Russia and other post-Soviet countries. One of the main goals of the conference was to develop a unified approach to assessing the general history of the CIS countries.

The joint work, dedicated to the participation of representatives of the peoples of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War, was presented at the conference by the co-chairman of RIO, scientific director of the Institute of General History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander Chubaryan . The project for a multi-volume publication “The History of Belarus” was also presented at the forum. The speakers also talked about historical memory and the dialogue of cultures in the context of relations between the countries of the post-Soviet space.

Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for International Cultural Cooperation Mikhail Shvydkoy emphasized that the pressing problem for the CIS member countries is the use of history for political purposes: “The position of both our President and our scientific community is that history should not be a sphere of politics for all of us. It is important that history does not separate peoples, but unites them.”
