Permanent representatives of the CIS countries opposed the distortion of history.

The Council of Permanent Plenipotentiary Representatives of the CIS States to the statutory and other bodies of the Commonwealth stated that it was against distorting the results of the Second World War, and also expressed hope for the soonest resumption of a broad international dialogue for the sake of strengthening international security.

“Attempts to revise or distort the results of World War II, as well as to rehabilitate and glorify the Nazis and their accomplices, deny the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by them, are unacceptable,” the Council of Permanent Representatives said in a press release issued in connection with the celebration of Victory Day in the Great Patriotic war.


The permanent representatives stated that they advocate that “the lessons of the Second World War remain a moral guide for the world community and serve as a warning against global conflicts and wars that are destructive for mankind.”

“We look forward to the soonest resumption of a broad international dialogue aimed at strengthening the system of international security and trust between states in order to prevent and eliminate threats to peace based on the observance of universally recognized norms and principles of international law,” the press release says.

It is noted that the permanent representatives of the CIS countries intend to promote in every possible way the dissemination of objective information about the events of the period of the Great Patriotic War, the preservation of the historical heritage associated with them.

“We expect that all countries will take a responsible approach to their obligations to preserve historical memory, including monuments, commemorative signs, memorial complexes and military burials of those who fell in the fight against the Nazi invaders,” the press release says.
