MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Moscow thanks all who took part in efforts to restore the Soviet military cemetery, Milejczyce in Poland, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"We are grateful to all who took part in completing this noble task, supported work to restore our military cemetery both in word and in deed," she said.
The spokeswoman said a ceremony has taken place in Milejczyce, marking the end of the repair work at the cemetery where more than 1,500 Red Army soldiers, who died liberating Poland during WWII, are buried.
"We are confident that such initiatives, bred in the social medium, prove the inconsistency of allegations about some insurmountable contradictions dividing Russia and Poland, including the interpretation of historic results of WWII," she said. "This example shows that the feeling of justice which is based on traditional moral principles, is equally intrinsic to Russian and Polish peoples," she noted.
Zakharova reminded reporters that the cemetery was vandalized in September 2015, and more than 50 grave-stones were damaged. The cemetery was restored thanks to the joint efforts by international charitable foundation "Kronstadt Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas" and local authorities.
