Yushchenko warns against restoration of totalitarianism in any country

Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko has called on all nations that were involved in WWII not to allow the restoration of totalitarianism in any country.

"As the head of the Ukrainian state, I am addressing all nations that took part in the Second World War. You went through the hell of the war against fascism. We cannot tolerate indifference and sacrilege toward that common fight and the dead heroes. In the new times, it is unthinkable to tolerate even the smallest hint of restoration of some totalitarian or authoritarian system and violate the holy right of peoples to their independent national existence," Yuschenko said at a rally in Kyiv marking the Soviet Union's victory in the 1941-1945 war against Nazi Germany.

Yuschenko also said he was sure that all the truth about that war will be known.
