I'm from the UK and I am sorry to here that your government has such a despicable attitude to its veterans. The political parties in this country do honour those who have given their lives in service during times of conflict, we have a day of remembrance every year in which the whole country give thanks to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This Sunday passed we had a televised church service to thank those who served in Afghanistan (I did 2 tours) which was attended by many political figures. I am not a fan of many of our governments polices (both foreign and domestic) by any means, but in the matter of keeping the memories of those who gave up their lives in passed wars, I cannot fault them.
Honoring the 20th-century veterans’ sacrifice before they pass from the scene, is at the forefront of everything we do at The National WWII Museum – from our exhibits, to oral histories, to the Museum’s $325 million expansion, a lasting tribute to the Greatest Generation.

This is what happened last time after WWII finished when the Allies appeased the Soviet Union...
The Baltic states were seized and dominated for 4 decades. 'Sanctions' were used back then too, just like in Crimea today.
Amazingly enough Russians still learn in their text books that the Baltics held 'revolutions' and joined the Soviet Union after WWII. Pretty funny actually, except it's true.
