Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called the attempts to revise the outcome of World War II the orgy of forgetfulness and green light to the spread of Nazi ideology on February 25 at the 43rd Regular Session of the UN Human Rights Council.
As Lavrov noted, there is a growing trend in the world to revise the decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal. At the same time, to feed self-serving interests, there are attempts to revise the internationally recognised outcome of World War II in whole.
“A drive to falsify history is taking on an increasingly cynical form. Civilised Europe is bashfully silent, as it continues to watch the sacrilegious “war” on monuments and memorials in honour of those who, at the cost of their lives, saved the peoples of the continent from total extermination. Perpetuating the memory of the murderers and criminals involved in the ‘implementation’ of the theory of racial superiority is hushed up as well,” the minister stated.
The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry reminded that in the Baltic countries, media freedom is being suppressed, dissent is being persecuted, the rights of representatives of ethnic minorities are being violated, and these actions have become standard practice. “Extremist parties, movements and groups that spread the ideology of Nazism, racial superiority, discrimination and xenophobia are feeling increasingly confident,” said Lavrov.
Russian representative stressed that calls on the western politicians to use their influence on the Baltic countries cause “tentative references to concern about freedom of speech and peaceful assembly.”
“In fact, it turns out that Western democracy thus greenlights the spread of Nazi ideology, the praise of Nazi minions and torchlight processions under the Waffen SS banner. This ‘political correctness’, in fact, justifies the anti-human ideology,” Lavrov concluded.
