    Statement on the anniversary of invading Czechoslovakia on 21 August 1968

    Statement on the anniversary of invading Czechoslovakia on 21 August 1968 Today, the Slovak Republic commemorates the 47th anniversary of Warsaw Pact troops invading Czechoslovakia and the start of more than twenty years of Soviet occupation of our country. These events represent a dark chapter in the history of the traditionally good Slovak-Russian relations. The Slovak Republic appreciates that, in the past, top political representatives of the Russian Federation have officially dissociated themselves from and apologized for the August 1968 invasion and the occupation that followed. A necessary prerequisite for a constructive development of bilateral relations is to come to terms with the past based on historic facts. Unfortunately, attempts to rewrite history and falsify the historic truth about the invasion of Czechoslovakia continue to appear. In May 2015, the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) broadcasted a documentary entitled “Warsaw Pact – Pages Declassified” with the authors´ commentary containing misrepresentations and old ideological clichés. This issue was brought to the attention of the Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Miroslav Lajčák during their talks in Moscow on 1 June 2015. The Embassy of the Slovak Republic to the Russian Federation also addressed a letter to the VGTRK management officially protesting against the documentary and asking for an explanation – however, with no reply as yet. VGTRK also did not reply to another letter offering the official Slovak view of the events of August 1968. The fact that the VGTRK broadcasted this false and truth-distorting work, as well as its indifference to communication, is even more striking in that the Slovak Republic vigorously and unequivocally refutes all attempts to purposefully revise history vis-à-vis the liberating of Europe from Nazism and casting doubt on the role of the Red Army in its defeat. Victory stays victory and occupation stays occupation. Therefore, we insist on respecting the historic truth also about the events of 1968, which represented a great and long-lasting tragedy for Czechoslovakia and its citizens.
