"When I worked as [Russia’s] permanent representative to NATO, you did not dare to do such things. You have become completely brazen now," Rogozin said in his Twitter.
Когда я работал постпредом при НАТО, вы себе такого не позволяли. Сейчас окончательно обнаглели. "Псы войны" решили сбросить козьи морды? https://t.co/J1vLvMM5uO— Дмитрий Рогозин (@Rogozin) 13 июля 2017 г.
He pointed out that the film showed the NATO’s support for Nazi ideals.
"The NATO’s film about ‘the Forest Brothers,’ killing our soldiers, proves that we witness NATO as successors of Hitler's remnants," Rogozin said.
Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova also criticized NATO's film. In her reaction, Zakharova called on the international society, which was not indifferent to careful approaches to tragic pages of the history, to properly assess "NATO's disgusting action." She added that such actions intended to undermine the results of the Nuremberg war crimes trial.
The so-called Forest Brothers actively fought against the Soviet government after the Second World War on the territory of the current Baltic states. Many of them previously served in the ranks of local Nazi battalions.
