Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law that makes it a crime to justify or deny Nazi war crimes.
The law Putin signed on May 5 introduces punishment of up to five years in prison or a fine of some 500,000 rubles (some $14,000) for anyone found guilty of denying facts established by the Nuremberg trials regarding the crimes of Axis powers.
The law applies to those who show public approval of Nazi crimes, especially if they attempt to spread such claims in the media.
The law also punishes those who knowingly disseminate “false information about the Soviet activities” during World War II.
The signing of the law comes as Russia is drawing comparisons between Ukrainian nationalists and Nazi war crimes and ahead of the May 9 anniversary of the end of World War II.
Michael Hoffman’s Note
As Professors Robert Faurisson and Arthur Butz (and many others) have amply demonstrated, the Nuremberg war crimes trials were kangaroo courts that used “testimony” obtained under torture and ruled that Judaic persons were “steamed to death,” along with other equally phantasmagorical “findings” which it is now a crime in Russia to deny. Institutionalizing the “Jews made into bars of soap” Nuremberg “testimony” is quite the laugh.
At least as outrageous, Putin makes it a crime to spread “false information” about Soviet war crimes and criminals. Does he have in mind the Soviet massacre of Polish officers in the Katyn forest, which was blamed on the Nazis, including a repeat of that “false information” about Germans and Katyn in this month of May?
Orwellian laws like this presuppose that no one is spreading “false information” about the German people, or if they are, it is perfectly permissible to do so.
Putin is pandering to Zionism, the religion of Holocaustianity and Soviet Communist elements. This is corruption and opportunism typical of a politician. We thought he aspired to be something more.
