Venediktova apologized for Lev Leshchenko’s song in his Day of Victory against Nazism post
Attorney General Irina Venediktova, who used Russian singer Lev Leshchenko’s song “Victory Day” to congratulate Victory Day against Nazism, removed the link to it on YouTube and apologized to those who insulted him.
Venediktova wrote about it on Facebook.
“I deleted the link – I apologize to everyone I offended,” she wrote.
At the same time, Venediktova left an extract from the lyrics on her Facebook page.
As Venediktova said, this song is a symbol of victory over fascism.
“The 1975 song is our story and an opportunity to be proud of the Great Victory. Leshchenko is not a symbol. Russia is an aggressor country. And Crimea is Ukrainian. No need to manipulate. Today is a bright day in memory of the dead. My grandfathers are back. I celebrate the victory over fascism. Happy holidays, friends! Never again, “noted the attorney general.

As noted, the day of victory over Nazism in World War II is a public holiday in Ukraine, which is officially celebrated on May 9, from 2016. It replaced the Soviet holiday “Victory Day in the Second World War “, which was celebrated in the USSR.
Russian singer Lev Leshchenko supported the Russian annexation of Ukrainian Crimea in 2014.
