MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, NATO published a documentary clip on its Twitter page about the so-called Forest Brothers presenting them as heroes, who fought against Soviet government for the independence of their countries.
"I remember that a half year ago the world community, including the mainstream media, was discussing whether it could be allowed to stage a dance on the topic of the Holocaust. I hope that the same people, who claim that they are not indifferent to careful approach to tragic pages of the history, would assess NATO's disgusting action. I hope there is no need to remind about the massive slaughters, in which those, who later called themselves Forest Brothers, were involved," Zakharova said on Facebook.
The so-called Forest Brothers actively fought against the Soviet government in 1944-1953 on the territory of the current Baltic states. Many of them previously served in the ranks of local Nazi battalions.
