MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Ukraine try to avoid mentioning the inadmissibility of glorification of Nazism although this process is plainly seen precisely in those countries, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov said in an interview with Kommersant Daily.
“A declaration dedicated to the 70th anniversary since the end of World War II was coordinated in Basel (at a session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the European security organization OSCE - TASS),” he said. “It was initiated by Russia and other member-states of the CIS Collective Security Treaty Organization.”
“This document aims to rebuff the strivings to revise history and is a tribute to the veterans and to the memory of those who fell in struggle with Nazism,” Meshkov said.
The document adopted at the session was compact but meaty. “The CSTO countries did believe the statement was to be expanded and that’s why they issued a longer version of it on their own,” he said.
“The common version contained compromise formulations but it speaks in plain language about the historic role of the allied powers’ victory over Nazism,” Meshkov said.
“Also, the issue of inadmissibility of glorification of Nazism is reflected in one way or another in the OSCE documents,” he said when the reporter asked him whether the provisions rebuffing glorification of Nazism had vanished from the final text.
“Frankly speaking, though, there are some countries that seek to avoid these provisions in OSCE documents,” Meshkov said. “First and foremost, these are the countries where such processes are in evidence.”
He answered in the positive to whether he meant the former Soviet Baltic republics and Ukraine in this case.
