The author employs the following archival documents declassified in recent years: reports of commissioners and leaders of the Council for the Affairs of Religious Cults, as well as plenary sessions data and the Central Muslim Spiritual Board data (Ufa). The author demonstrativelyproves that in the recently released multivolume basic work “The Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945” there occurred serious errors regarding the participation of various confessions in the war. On the basis of the conducted research there are proposed recommendations to the Russian government authorities, including the introduction of amendments to the Federal Law of September 26, 1997 No. 125 “On freedom of Conscience and Religious Associations” and to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
