The most important task for the world community is to never again allow crimes like the Holocaust to happen, Russian permanent representative to the UN Gennady Gatilov said during his speech at the Palace of Nations at the official ceremony dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp on January 27.
Gatilov noted that humanity responded to the crimes of Nazism with the Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Charter. Therefore, the international community must exterminate the root of everything that denies, falsifies and revises the common history, as well as justifies neo-Nazism under the pretext of protecting freedom of speech.
As part of this approach to the global struggle against neo-Nazism, humanity must respond not only to the desecration of monuments to the liberators of Europe and the victims of the Holocaust, but also to persistent attempts to belittle the decisive role of the Soviet Union in the victory over Nazi Germany.
At the end of his speech Gatilov called to remembrance the heroic feat of “the Red Army`s officers and soldiers, who overthrew Nazism and stopped the terrible destruction” and that the day when Soviet soldiers liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp has become “an eternal reminder of the atrocities committed by the Nazis, and their heinous crimes will never be justified or forgiven”.
