Bloggers, who call themselves carriers of patriotic views, appeal en masse to the prosecutor's office and the investigation committee with a request to check the statements of Dmitry Bykov about General Andrei Vlasov and the Second World War.
During his meeting in St. Petersburg in December at the Amateur Readings conference, Bykov said that he intended to write a book about General Andrej Vlasov, commander of the Russian Liberation Army during the Second World War, who was in the post-war Soviet Union was condemned and executed for treason. According to Bykov, the only real patriot is someone who is absolutely orthogonal in contradiction with Russian patriotism today. Today patriot means being a Russophobe.
Moreover, Bykov said that the Nazi extermination of Jews alienated important parts of Soviet society from supporting Hitler during the Second World War:
Unfortunately, the Russian civil war of the 1940s almost included the mass extermination of the Jews. And those who were going to live in free Russia, liberated by the Nazis, agreed that the Jews had been completely exterminated in the area controlled by the Nazis. At that price, I think no one was ready to buy Russian happiness.
