The article is dedicated to the matters of historical memory preservation at the individual and collective levels. The rituals of Soviet people, the creation of myths about the Great October Revolution and the Great Patriotic War have been analyzed. It has been scientifically proved that contemporary commemorative initiatives do not take into account the specifics of memorable stereotypes about the Second World War, but stir up conflict zones in society, which are skillfully used by external forces to destabilize the situation in Ukraine.
