MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov has called the plans to republish Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf in Germany a strange way of countering the growing neo-Nazi trends in Europe.
"Germany is going to republish Hitler’s Mein Kampf. A strange way to confront the growing neo-Nazi trends in Europe!" Dolgov tweeted.
The diplomat recommended Berlin "to more actively seek the disbandment of neo-Nazi battalions in Ukraine and prosecution of their gunmen for war crimes."
The BBC earlier reported that Adolf Hitler’s political manifesto would be republished in Germany next month, for the first time since the end of World War II. A total of 4,000 copies with some 3,500 notes prepared by various experts will be printed. The BBC noted citing German officials that "public access to the text would be limited amid fears that this could stir neo-Nazi sentiment."
In Russia, Mein Kampf is prohibited for sale, since it fuels the racial and ethnic hatred. On April 13, 2010, the book was placed on the federal list of extremist materials under number 604.
