"Once again, I will demonstrate the firm resolve and full confidence of China and Russia, as permanent members of the UN Security Council and the victorious countries in World War II, in the protection of world peace, stability and development, and will once again show that the peoples of China and Russia Boundlessly cherish friendship, fastened with blood, will confirm their mutual desire to create a beautiful future, "said Li Hui.
At a press conference, Li Hui touched on the role of China and Russia in the Great Patriotic War. If the Soviet Union played a decisive role in World War II, then resistance in China to the Japanese invaders became the main front in the East.

"It is disappointing that individual countries are not in a position to correctly assess and reconsider the history of external aggression and colonial domination. They are trying to erase the line between truth and lies, and war criminals are turned into heroes. In recent years, this situation has been exacerbated, "the ambassador said.
