Pro-Russian telegram channels write about this in the context of developing a bill to abolish March 8, May day and Victory day. In the messages, propagandists appeal to Soviet approaches to celebrating Victory day and claim that the cancellation of the holiday allegedly deprives Ukrainians of reasons for pride and the feeling of a victorious people.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is indeed considering a proposal to create three new holidays instead. In Ukraine, since 2015, as in European countries, the end of World War II has been celebrated with the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation (May 8). This is a day of mourning and memory of tens of millions of victims. The Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation does not cancel the historical significance of the events of the Second World War, but shifts the focus to the memory of the price - the lives of millions of people.
Russian propaganda is trying to discredit any attempts by Ukraine to separate its cultural space from Russian and resort to messages about “common history”, “brotherhood”, etc. Previously, propaganda wrote that the “Kyiv totalitarian regime” was waging a cultural war against Russia.
