MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation Council upper house of Russian parliament on Wednesday ratified agreements with Serbia and Slovenia on military cemeteries.
The inter-governmental agreements lay down the foundation for ensuring proper care for Russian war graves, monuments and memorials located in the territories of Serbia and Slovenia.
The sides will take on reciprocal commitments in each particular case to allocate free land allotments to each other for unlimited use to create new or develop the old military cemeteries. Mikhail Margelov, the head of the Federation Council Committee for International Affairs, told the upper house meeting on Wednesday that Russian-Serbian and Russian-Slovenian commissions would be set up respectively to coordinate the implementation of the aforesaid agreements.
The lawmaker said that the documents’ ratification met Russia’s interests. “It will have a positive impact on Russian-Serbian and Russian-Slovenian cooperation in the preservation of military memorials,” Margelov emphasized, adding no additional budget allocations would be necessary.
