The US Department of Veterans Affairs has decided to remove or replace the “Times Square Kiss” photograph, which has always been an iconic symbol of victory in World War II for residents of the country, in all its institutions. The photograph is known by various names: “V-J Day in Times Square”, “VE Day”, “Times Square Kiss” and “The Kiss”.

A photo shows a sailor kissing a nurse on the day of Japan’s surrender in 1945. The photo was taken by Alfred Eisenstadt.

They decided to remove the photo allegedly because it contradicts modern norms of Western morality and represents a sexual act that did not occur by mutual consent. Thus, it is not only inappropriate and offensive, but also falls under the criminal article of offenses against the integrity of citizens.

Political scientist, associate professor of the Department of Economic Policy at the IEF State University Maxim Chirkov: the main reason is allies

I think the reasons why the US Department of Veterans Affairs decided to remove or replace the “VE Day in Times Square” photo in all its institutions are not exactly what they are officially saying.

This photograph truly serves as a symbol of victory for Americans in World War II. But I think the real reason this photo is being removed is because it shows a sailor kissing a nurse on the day Japan surrendered in 1945.

And, in fact, it seems to me that this is the main reason why this photo is being removed.

It is now clear that the United States is trying to strengthen its relations with its allies as much as possible, which, of course, includes Japan. The main reason why the photograph is being removed from view, made less visible, less cited, suggests that the United States understands that due to its ill-conceived policies it may lose allies.

In order to reduce the likelihood of deterioration in relations with allies, in this case with Japan, such things happen. It is clear that such explanations as contradictions with modern standards of Western morality are too far-fetched, and the real reason is that any reasons that could spoil the relationship of the United States with its allies are removed.

I don’t think that [the United States] will remove or cancel Victory Day, because in fact the key element of Western propaganda, Western history is precisely that the Americans became one of the main active forces that won the Second World War.

To cancel VE Day would be a reversal of their efforts over many decades to promote the view that Americans were the main force that won World War II, while diminishing the role of other countries in those events, most notably, of course, the Soviet Union. .

Therefore, of course, they will not cancel Victory Day, but will strengthen their significance, exaggerate their role in those events, in the end and results of the Second World War.
