UN, November 18. /TASS/. A UN General Assembly committee voted overwhelmingly to pass a resolution condemning the glorification of the Nazis, with Ukraine, the United States and the tiny Pacific nation of Palau being the only states that voted against.
The document was passed by the UN Social, Humanitarian and Cultural committee late Thursday with 131 states voting in favor and 48 abstentions, mostly by members of the European Union.
Speaking at the session, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights Anatoly Viktorov said that a number of countries are currently "waging a war with monuments of those who fought Nazism" and turn pro-Nazi forces "into national heroes."
The resolution, co-authored by Russia and 54 other states, will be brought before the UN General Assembly in December.
It expresses "deep concern about the glorification, in any form, of the Nazi movement, neo-Nazism and former members of the Waffen SS organization," including by erecting monuments and memorials and holding public demonstrations in the name of the glorification of the Nazi past, the Nazi movement and neo-Nazism.
