VIENNA, November 25 /TASS/. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Tuesday it was indicative the United States, Canada and Ukraine had voted against the Russia-proposed anti-Nazi resolution at the United Nations.
“The vote outcome shows that the majority of countries are sharing our approaches on impermissibility of glorification of Nazism, racial and other forms of discrimination,” Gatilov told TASS.
“The fact that the three states voted against it (resolution) is very indicative because they did so proceeding from their own political convictions,” the Russian diplomat said.
It is particularly important that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Russia-proposed resolution ahead of the forthcoming 70th anniversary of Russia’s victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) over fascist Germany.
