MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma on Friday issued an appeal to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the parliaments of European countries, calling on hem to eliminate the crisis of trust on the European continent.
The text of the appeal says the year 2015 put the world in the face of new serious challenges.
“The pan-European tragedy accompanied by terrorist attacks against peaceful people in Paris, Odessa, Donetsk, and Lugansk and by a buildup of confrontation in trade and economy, is growing in scope and scale and threatening security of the entire European continent,” the members of parliament said.
The deputies say that “memories of a joint exploit of soldiers of the anti-Hitler coalition does not allow us to bury combat brotherhood and the common struggle with Nazism in oblivion” in the year where the 70th anniversary of victory in the war is observed.
“We cannot permit the situations where the successors to that criminal ideology and those who stand behind their backs could sow the seeds of discord and alienation in the family of Europeans peoples,” the appeal says.
Exactly in this context, Duma deputies urged the counterparts from other European parliaments to put every efforts “into overcoming the crisis, which has already brought grief and devastation to the southeast of Ukraine and is now casting doubts over the very opportunity of peaceful life for more than 300 million Europeans.”.
