More than 120 member-states of the UN General Assembly have supported the adoption of resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism and neo-Nazism proposed by Russia, TASS reports. The vote took place the day before, on November 12. 

The United States yet again refused to support the resolution, 55 countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, Georgia, the Baltic republics, abstained.

The Russian Foreign Ministry is sure that the resolution is crucial for the fight against racism and racial discrimination. The doucment notes the unacceptability of glorifying Nazi accomplices, including former SS servicemen, which the Nuremberg tribunal recognized as criminals.

The authors of the resolution call on countries to take measures to prevent distortion of the results of WWII and denial of crimes against humanity and war crimes committed during the war years. The authors of the document strongly condemn incidents related to the glorification and propaganda of Nazism.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
