According to RIA Novosti, the resolution recommends countries to take appropriate concrete measures to prevent a revision of the results of World War II.
On September 6, Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov proposed to classify the rehabilitation and justification of Nazism as extremist activity.
“I consider it necessary to include the rehabilitation, justification and propaganda of Nazism in the concept of extremist activity, which will significantly expand the possibilities of countering such phenomena,” TASS quoted Krasnova as saying.
In the summer, at the end of July, Russia called on the United States and Ukraine to support in the UN General Assembly a resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism. This was reported by the Russian embassy in Washington.
The diplomats noted that Moscow annually presents the UN General Assembly resolution “On the fight against the glorification of Nazism and neo-Nazism.”
“Only the USA and Ukraine are against it. We hope they will reconsider their position, ”the embassy said on Twitter.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy back in May called Nazism an absolute evil and called for condemnation of any attempts to justify it. He published such a statement on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation in his Telegram channel.
“When we say ‘never again’, we mean first of all the very specific ‘never forget’. Therefore, this day is celebrated in many countries – of memory and reconciliation. And we have it not as a substitute for May 9, but in order to preserve and understand the history more fully. Because it is common, one for everyone in the world. To never forget that Nazism was an absolute evil. And anyone who tries to justify him deserves only condemnation, ”Zelensky said.
He urged “never to forget” that the Ukrainians “fought together with dozens of peoples against Nazism.”
“Together with Russians, Poles, Belarusians, Jews, Georgians, Armenians, British, Americans, French and many others. And definitely not so that the war claimed the lives of our people 76 years later, ”wrote the Ukrainian president.
Earlier, the office of the President of Ukraine condemned the march of neo-Nazis in the center of Kiev on the occasion of the anniversary of the creation of the SS Galicia division, which took place on 28 April.
