On April 14, 2020, the State Duma (Parliament) of Russia adopted a law on adjusting the date of the Day of Military Glory – the Day of the End of World War II.
The day of military glory is postponed from September 2 to 3. The document says that the presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR in 1945 adopted the decree “On declaring September 3 the holiday of victory over Japan.”
The Russian parliament adopted this law on April 14, because April 13 is the date of the 1941 pact (agreement) on the neutrality of the USSR and Japan. The Neutrality Pact between the USSR and Japan is a Soviet-Japanese agreement on mutual neutrality, signed in Moscow on April 13, 1941, two years after the border conflict on the Khalkhin-Gol River.
The adoption of the law on this day is a sign of the breakdown of this agreement.
The second News, which confirms the first, is the transfer of the Victory Parade from May 9, 2020 to a later date. Given the first news, most likely, the Victory Parade will be postponed to September 3, 2020.
This means a review of the outcome of World War II. In fact, this means that Russia considers Japan to be its enemy.
Stalin did not want the complete defeat of Germany. In 1944, when the Russians expelled the Germans from the territory of the USSR and went to the border, Stalin wanted to stop his troops. But due to unknown circumstances, he was forced to continue the rout of Hitler. New decisions of the Russian authorities return the situation of 1944. Now Japan is the enemy that needs to be finished off. They also believe that the European Union should be liquidated and the German Empire should be restored within the borders of 1944.
Stalin planned to crack down on the United States and England with the help of Hitler. Now in Russia they do not believe that the United States is their enemy. But England is now the number 1 enemy for Russia. The leadership of England repeatedly carried out special operations to kill the Russian tsars. They believe that retaliation will destroy England.
