President of Russian Federation Volodymyr Putin named Kyiv in the list of ‘one of the Russian capitals’. He stated this during delivering his speech on congratulations on Day of victory over Nazism on May 9, as TASS reported.

“The victory won by the courage of the participants of the defense of the old Russian capitals - Kyiv and Novgorod Veliky, by the fearlessness of the defenders of Smolensk, Odesa, Sevastopol, and by the resistance of the inhabitants of Leningrad during the blockade,” Putin said.

According to the Russian President, the feat of veterans from different countries cannot be divided.

“Today, we can observe how a number of states deliberately distort the events of the war, how they commemorate those who, forgetting the honor and human dignity, served the Nazis, shamelessly lying to their children, betraying their ancestors,” Putin added.

He assured that the Russian Federation will continue to develop its defense potential, but it will remain open to cooperation with other countries in the fight against terrorism, extremism, and neo-Nazism.
