Moscow is outraged by the individual countries declared war monuments, established in honor of the fighters against Nazism and fascism, stated in the comments of the Department of information and press of MFA of Russia.

In new York on 16 November at the meeting of the Third Committee of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on Russia’s initiative adopted a resolution «combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance».

The Russian foreign Ministry noted that in the resolution again condemned the glorification of the Nazi movement and the whitewashing of former members of the SS organization, including units of the «Waffen-SS», recognized by the Nuremberg Tribunal criminal.

«Expressed deep concern and indignation in connection with the announced by individual countries of war monuments in honor of the fighters against Nazism and fascism, which over the past year in several States acquired the character of a barbaric deliberate policy of the authorities», — said in comments.

In Moscow «it is disappointing the continued unwillingness of some delegations, under the pretext of freedom of expression – to speak out against the dissemination of racist and extremist ideas.» The foreign Ministry noted that such an approach is contrary to the terms of article fourth of the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination, criminalizing such acts.

«Defies rational explanation, the position of the delegation of the United States. Not prisutstvoval never talks, two days prior to the voting of its representatives have circulated amendments aimed at radical change in the nature and character of our initiative. The fact that these proposals were rejected by an impressive majority of States members of the United Nations (81 votes against and 73 abstentions, «for» made only the United States, Ukraine and Israel) attests to the topicality and significance for the world community of the draft submitted by Russia together with a group of collaborators», — said in comments.

Earlier in Poland entered into force amendments to the law banning the promotion of communism or another totalitarian regime. He suggests, among other things, the demolition of Soviet monuments. According to estimates of the Institute of national remembrance, the law will affect more than 450 sites across the country, 230 of which are monuments to the soldiers of the red army.
