On the 70th anniversary of operation Barbarossa, Romanian president Traian Băsescu told a reporter than his nation was justified in attacking the Soviet Union. At the time, the Soviet Union had already invaded part of Romania and annexed Moldova.

Several media outlets have attacked the president and falsely reported that he expressed support for the totalitarian regime that controlled Germany from 1935-1945.

Romania was a member of the anti-Comintern Alliance and the Axis Pact. It was one of eight sovereign nations who invaded the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941.

WWII may be the only war in western history where nations are still told that they must feel sorry for their participation seventy years later.
