Peskov: Russia opposes revision of the historical past

Russia opposes the revision of the historical past, without their knowledge it is impossible to look to the future, said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

"In fact, the revision of the historical past - is something we all advocate. We have a great past, where there were a lot of good, but it was bad. We must not forget neither one nor the other. But, not knowing his past, not confident in the future - it is also known to be the truth. Otherwise, I must recommend you to contact the investigating authorities", - he told, answering a question, fit if the process of investigation into the death of crown Prince Nicholas II in the state paradigm of revision of the historical past or is aimed at setting the historical truth.

"The essence does not change - the Bolsheviks shot the Royal family. For the details, I recommend to investigative body to handle. We lived in a country where there was one Communist party, which thus protected his legacy. But we have already invaded this historical-philosophical area. Let's just start from the bare statement of fact. The shooting took place - had. Shot not only the king, but the family, including children, it is unlikely you can argue with this", - said Peskov.

The last Russian Emperor Nicholas II and his family were shot in the summer of 1918 in Ekaterinburg. In 1991, a grave was discovered in a place called pig log near Yekaterinburg (presumably the remains of the Imperial couple and three daughters, the Grand duchesses). In 2007, near this place was found another burial of crown Prince Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria.

In 2000 the Russian Orthodox Church canonized Nicholas II and his family canonized. After the opening of the graves near Ekaterinburg remains of members of the Imperial family were buried in the tomb of the Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg. However, the Church does not recognize the found remains genuine due to the lack of evidence.

In July 2018, the representative of the RF IC reported that the complex of molecular-genetic examination confirmed the nationality found in the area Porosenkov log near Ekaterinburg remains of members of the Royal family and their entourage. In addition, experts have established the kinship of Emperor Alexander III, whose remains were exhumed in the Cathedral of St. Petersburg, and the dead man, identified as Nicholas II.
