MINSK, 21 November (BelTA) – In some countries the Russophobia narrative has become almost an official ideology, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today at a joint meeting of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Russia and Belarus in Minsk on 21 November, BelTA has learned.

According to him, Belarus and Russia attach great importance to the preservation of the memory of shared history. Therefore, the two states are concerned over the dangerous trends to distort the history of the Great Patriotic War.

“Attempts to justify or laud the Nazis and their collaborators, revise the decisions of the Nuremberg Trials continue. Simultaneously with the falsification of history we see Russophobia gathering pace. In some European states it has nearly become an official ideology,” Sergei Lavrov said.

“In these circumstances we see our common task in continuing the efforts to counter these destructive attempts using all available political and legal tools. We suggest applying an integrated approach and aligning the potential of diplomats, MPs, scientists, and the general public. Today, we will outline the steps we should take to improve cooperation in the area,” the Russian minister said.

According to Sergei Lavrov, the parties agreed to prepare a series of special events to mark 80 years since the start of World War II.
