MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Russia hopes that the international community will condemn the event in memory of Waffen SS veterans in Estonia, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Friday.
"The event in memory of Waffen SS veterans held in Estonia’s Sinimae is another shameful page in the modern history of this country," Dolgov wrote on his Twitter microblog. "Nazi criminals are once again glorified, responsible for massacres of civilians and war crimes of the World War II," he added.
"We hope for decisive condemnation of this flagrant violation of international law and appropriate measures from OHCHR (Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights), OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), CE (Council of Europe), EU (European Union)," the diplomat noted. He stressed that "such events are unacceptable in member countries of the Council of Europe and OSCE, and are immoral in regard to memory of millions of victims of Nazism.".
