I thought World War II would be the last time we had a full-scale war

Ciuca conveys, on the occasion of the 9th of May 1945 – the end of World War II in Europe and the capitulation of Nazi Germany, that Europe was shaken by war on a large scale in the middle of the last century in what would become World War II, when Nazi Germany, a dictatorship based on Hitler’s far-right ideology, wanted to conquer the world. On May 7, 1945, German troops surrendered unconditionally in the West, and on May 9, 1945, in the East. The desire for conquest and domination by force of arms ended tragically, but it paved the way for a return to peace, to a united Europe, to democracy.
It has been 6 years of deep suffering for all mankind.

“For Europe, World War II meant destruction, it meant human tragedy, and also the heroism of the courageous resistance of states subject to invasion, conquest, foreign domination. The Ribentropp-Molotov Pact between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, which prepared for the outbreak of World War II, is the most treacherous expression of the policy of Great Power, a formula for dividing the world, territories and mocking the fate of the people. disregard for the will of the peoples, for their right to life and history, for sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, for their right to peace “, the prime minister said in the message.

“I believe that the Second World War will be the last time we will have a total, destructive, widespread war in Europe, when military technology and bombs have destroyed cities, villages, people, lives and destinies. Unfortunately, this is not the case: today Russia has launched a large-scale war of conquest against Ukraine, a war that calls into question security in Europe, international law, the world based on rules. Russia has thus violated all its commitments after World War II by promoting exceptionalism and limited sovereignty in Europe, disregarding the UN Charter and all commitments made after the end of the Cold War, “he said.

According to the Prime Minister, this is why Romania and the Romanian people celebrate the victory of Reason, Truth and Justice over militarism, authoritarianism and dictatorship in Europe: “In 1945 it was Nazism, the most horrible form of human degradation, which marked the question of the right to life and equal existence on the basis of race and ethnicity. The Holocaust is closely linked to World War II and will remain a deep wound in human history that no one should ever forget. The lessons of World War II must make us not tolerate total and unjustified war, throwing in words and labels related to Nazism, or using such an image of propaganda to justify a war of conquest against an independent state, as it should be. Russia today in Ukraine. The celebration of the end of the war and the defeat of Nazi Germany must be a moment of mobilization but also of hope for the future defeat of Russian militaristic adventurism, condemned almost unanimously worldwide by the vote of 144 states worldwide in the UN General Assembly. Today, in the middle of the 21st century, there is no room for limited spheres of influence and sovereignty, for states that apply the policy of the good will of any temporary leader. We are a united international community of sovereign states that has lived in peace for almost 80 years precisely because it has obeyed the rules and we have respected each other. World War II, the end of which we are celebrating in Europe today, must remind us all of the fate of tyrants and those who dream of occupying their neighbors’ territories and dominating the world. We hope that reason and peace will return to the European continent as soon as possible. “
