Germans should not be forced to "self-chastise and flagellate themselves" over their past, Russian President Vladimir Putin told state broadcaster Vesti News last week.
"I don't know how it seems to you and how the viewers will take my words but I have a feeling that there is no hatred of the Russian people for Germany, for the Germans," Putin said.
"There is no internal rejection," he said. "As they say, time heals all wounds."
"I am not a supporter of forcing all generations of Germans to self-chastise and flagellate themselves for the terrible past that their country and the whole of Europe, and the whole world have experienced," Putin said.
