Russian Minister of Education call UNESCO for stopping destruction of WW2 monuments
Minister of Education of the Russian Federation Olga Vasilyeva has claimed about unacceptability of pulling down monuments of WWII heroes at 39th Session of UNESCO General Conference in Paris, according to TASS.
During her speech, the minister has called members of this prestigious international organization for strict assessment of neo-Nazi phenomena in Europe and government’s actions allowing destruction of monuments to heroic winners of WWII, making the foundation of UN possible.
Olga Vasilyeva has remarked that humanity repeated many cruel lessons in its history having neglected or mistreated the facts. She has emphasized that this problem should be handled more thoughroughly. She also claimed about necessity of issuing laws and resolutions banning such actions.
If we do not want to let countries and their nations fall apart, if we do not expect new border lines, our duty is to protect the truth, stand for the deeds, dignity and honest name of the dead and the living, Olga Vasilyeva wrapped up.
It is worth reminding that amendments to the Law about Decommunization came into effect in Poland on October 21. They legalized dismantling the monuments to Soviet Worriers - Liberators.
