In 2019-2020 memory of WWII many times became subject of bitter polemics, controversial declarations and symbolic gestures of world leaders. Vladimir Putin even published an article devoted to these issues.

Why memory wars around WWII escalated exactly now? Is there anything in the legacy of that war, which can be used today in a positive way in international relation, which cause so much concern? The participants in the discussion will answer these and other questions.
