Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly Andrey Belyaninov expressed confidence in this, sending a greeting to the participants of the International Scientific and Diplomatic Congress “Yalta Peace - Historical Experience and Prospects”.
The greeting also says:
- The International Union of non-governmental organizations “Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly” has paid, and will continue to pay great attention to the preservation of historical truth. At the same time, the priority of our activities is peace-making, shifting the focus from ethnic strife and hostile relations to the establishment of universal basic values guiding people towads peaceful initiatives, spiritual harmony and international cooperation.
That is why we called the International Megaproject of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory “VICTORIOUS TGETHER – for Peace and Creation”. We consider the International Public Forum “Preserving the Memory of the Second World War and the Great Patriotic War” to be the core of the Megaproject. We hold its sessions in different countries of Eurasia.
Recently, in early September the 5th Session of our Forum was held here in the Crimea, in the Vorontsov Palace. It was held under the motto “Let's Protect the Truth about the Victory!”
The first Session of the Forum was held as part of the XV Sevastopol International Festival of Documentaries and TV Programs “VICTORIOUS TOGETHER” in May 2019. In October 2019, supported by the Ministry of Culture of Azerbaijan and the Russian Centre for Science and Culture, it was continued at the Baku Slavic University. In February 2020, the 3rd Session of the Forum was held in Yalta as part of the International Scientific Conference “Yalta-1945: Lessons of History”, and on June 17, 2020, the Forum was held online; experts from 15 countries - representatives of all former republics of the Soviet Union took part in it.
The key theme of all sessions of the Forum is historical memory and the truth about our common history, about the heroic feat of peoples united in opposing fascism and defending the Fatherland. The Forum aims to draw attention to the lessons of the Second World War, promote active resistance to attempts to revive fascism and Nazism, and attract the international community to an unbiased and objective study of history. I assure you that we will continue our activities in this direction, and I invite you to join our events.
On behalf of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly I express my hope that our events and similar actions of other organizations have laid a solid foundation for the today's event - the International Congress “Yalta Peace: Historical Experience and Prospects”, which sets a truly global goal of establishing a humanistic noospheric civilization and a sustainable multipolar world order based on a partnership of civilizations and powers with the leading role of the UN to overcome the global crisis, strengthen peace, security, and prosperity of States.
We hope that the outcomes of the Congress will become a turning point in modern history, and will undoubtedly contribute to the preservation of peace, the affirmation of historical truth. They will once again remind us that the period of political struggle must inevitably be replaced by an era of peaceful coexistence of peoples.
I wish the organizers and participants of the Congress productive work, new ideas and achievements, interesting and useful contacts and success in their noble activities aimed at establishing the ideals of peace, good neighbourliness, mutual assistance, partnership and friendly cooperation on our planet.
The International Scientific and Diplomatic Congress “Yalta Peace - Historical Experience and Prospects”, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Yalta Conference, establishment of UN and UNESCO, is held in Moscow and Yalta (Russia) from October 5 to 9, 2020.
The Congress is organized by the International Institute of Pitirim Sorokin – Nikolai Kondratieff (misc) in collaboration with Lomonosov Moscow State University, Scientific Council of RAS on complex problems of Eurasian economic integration, modernization, competitiveness and sustainable development, Vernadsky Crimean Federal University. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and Presidential Grants Foundation supports the Congress.
The subject of the Congress is the state of the historical rift in which humanity found itself as a result of the change of epochs and the dynamics of the development of world and local civilizations.
Under these conditions, scientists are called upon to understand the essence of the changes taking place, to identify the causes of the global crisis and ways to overcome it, to determine the contours of the future world order and strategies for its construction. This is the mission of the Congress.
The Congress is based on a fundamental scientific basis, a new vision of the laws and prospects for the development of civilization, a deep analysis of the historical lessons of the Second World War and the Yalta Peace. It is aimed at countering the falsification of history, at revealing the true causes and consequences of the Second World War. The Congress is intended to highlight the crucial role of the Yalta and other conferences of the leaders of the three great powers of the anti-Hitler coalition, the significance of the Yalta Peace, which created the conditions for the establishment of the universal United Nations and the prevention of a new global catastrophe.
Sessions of the Congress and the final press conference are held online with simultaneous translation into English and are broadcast on the “Yalta Peace” website http://yaltapeace.ru
