The celebration of the end of World War II

Question: In Russia and in some other CIS countries, on May 9th Victory Day, the Immortal Regiment March which is a procession is held which marks the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II. In this procession people hold portraits of dead family members who fought and died in the war or after the war. It is an action to keep the memory of individual veterans alive and it is getting very popular. Year by year the number of people participating in this procession is growing. What is the nature of this phenomenon?

Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Kazakhstan in 2018

It is largely an expression of the fact that the Russian nation has not been willing to move on and leave the past behind. It is an attempt to cling on to some form of greatness that people feel they have lost. They feel that with the dissolution of the Soviet Union they lost the sense of self-importance that they had during the Soviet Union. They cling to what they consider to be their greatest achievement, the defeat of Nazi Germany.

In the great patriotic war which the rest of the world calls the second world war and which the rest of the world realizes that certainly Russia played a role in defeating Nazi Germany but they alone did not defeat Nazi Germany and could not have done so. It is from a spiritual perspective not a healthy phenomenon but an expression of the fact that people have not been willing to move on.

If you would look for a Western parallel, consider how you would feel if Germany created a similar celebration of when the Nazis invaded and defeated Poland or France or some of the other nations.
