Belarus, Russia committed to defending truth about Great Patriotic War

MINSK, 30 June (BelTA) - Belarus and Russia are committed to resolutely suppressing the ongoing cynical attempts to rewrite or distort the history of the Great Patriotic War, reads the joint statement signed by Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the countries in Minsk on 30 June, BelTA has learned.

"Thereupon, we emphasize that the facts of deportation and extermination by the Nazis and their accomplices of the civilian population of the USSR established in the verdict of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg should be regarded as genocide of the peoples of the Soviet Union. In the context of the growing nationalism and neo-fascism trends and the reprogramming of people's minds towards the glorification of Nazism, our countries will continue to act proactively to counteract these manifestations destructive for all mankind," the document says.

Belarus and Russia will be working to get the objective assessments of historical events reflected in the documents of international organizations, to promote in the UN General Assembly a resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.
