Those involved in the genocide and murder of civilians during the Great Patriotic War should be condemned, their names and crimes should be made public. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the RF IC, Alexander Fedorov, speaking on Saturday, November 21, at the international forum “Lessons from Nuremberg”.
According to him, the department is currently initiating criminal cases on the facts of discovering new mass graves of civilians killed during the war. The circumstances of the massacres involved in them, including those currently living in other countries, are being established, he added.
On the eve, the chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bastrykin, urged to consolidate the fact of the genocide of the Soviet people during the Great Patriotic War. On the same day, Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov announced the need to legislate a ban on rehabilitation, propaganda of Nazism and falsification of history.
On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the crimes of the Nazis have no statute of limitations, and that attempts to rehabilitate and even glorify Nazi criminals are shameless and deceitful.
In October, Putin agreed to a proposal to strengthen legislative measures prohibiting the identification of the goals and actions of the Soviet leadership and Nazi Germany. The proposal was initiated by the head of the State Duma Committee on Culture Elena Yampolskaya.
