MOSCOW, April 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday approved ratification of the Russian-Slovenian inter-governmental agreement on military cemeteries signed in Ljubljana on May 3, 2013, the official Kremlin website reports.
The inter-governmental agreement lays down the foundation for ensuring proper care for Russian war graves located in the territory of Slovenia and Slovenian military cemeteries in Russia; regulates the rules of exhumation and reburial of remains and is aimed at ensuring due protection and preservation of military cemeteries.
The agreement provides for sharing information on the presence, location and the state of war graves; the sides are to hand over the lists and personal data on perished and dead servicemen buried in the territories of both countries as well as provide access for each other to documents linked to the burial places.
The agreement obliges Russia and Slovenia to cooperate in finding places for military graves, in exhuming and reburying the remains and covering the expenses on development and maintenance of military cemeteries.
Under the agreement, the parties are to take on commitments to grant free land allotments to each other for unlimited use to develop old cemeteries and create the new ones.
In addition to that, each side is supposed to render assistance to the citizens of the other side, in accordance with the laws of their respective countries, in visiting graves located in the territories of their respective countries with an aim to pay tribute to the memory of perished or dead servicemen.
The agreement’s ratification meets Russia’s interests. It will produce a positive impact on Russian-Slovenian cooperation in the field of military memorials and will require no additional allocations from the Russian federal budget.
