European countries’ rejection of draft resolution on combating glorification of Nazism a political hypocrisy

Moscow, SANA– Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova  announced Saturday that the essence of Russian decision at the UN on glorification of Nazism is unquestionable except by immoral figures.

Zakharova added that the rejection of Russian draft resolution on combating glorification of Nazism, submitted to the UN general Assembly, by the European countries and countries that joined them, is “a political hypocrisy.”

The United Nations General Assembly Third Committee on Friday adopted Russia’s draft resolution “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.” The document was supported by 106 delegations. Fifty-one states voted against, and 15 states abstained.
