Adopted by the Saeima law, equalizing veterans of the SS and the red Army shudders as «blasphemous and disgusting act,» said the speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko.

The Federation Council on Tuesday passed a statement condemning this law.

«It is impossible to imagine that this is happening in our time. It’s blasphemous, disgusting decision, which is a desecration of the memory of millions who died fighting with Nazism. Shudder to listen to this», — said Matvienko at a meeting of the chamber.

She expressed the hope that inter-parliamentary bodies and national parliaments agree with the position of the Federation Council and condemn adopted by Saeima the law.
