MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Secretary of Russia’s Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said the United States and Ukraine are using neo-Nazi and ultra-right forces pursuing their own political interests.
On December 17, the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly adopted a Russian-initiated resolution dubbed "Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance." As many as 129 countries supported the resolution, while the United States and Ukraine voted against it.
"The decision of the United States and Ukraine to vote against the Russia-initiated resolution is within the frames of these countries’ strategy of using neo-Nazi and ultra-right forces in their own political interests," Patrushev said in an interview with Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily.
