Our reality is still determined by the decisions reached during the Yalta Conference, related to the formation of the UN and UNESCO. They became possible thanks to the Victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War.

This was recalled by the Deputy Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, Director General of the Institute for Economic Strategies (IES), Doctor of Economics, Professor, RAS expert Alexander Ageev during the International Scientific and Diplomatic Congress “Yalta Peace: Historical Experience and Prospects”.

“The new tension is taking place not on the battlefield, but on the field of information and the so-called wars of memory,” - the scientist recalled. “If we allow the truth to be turned into post-truth, and then into a lie, then very soon it will turn out that there was no Victory.”
