Moscow - President Vladimir Putin today considered attempts to rehabilitate fascism to be irresponsible and falsified, as he considered that Nazi crimes never expire, when participating in a forum on lessons from the Nuremberg process.
Putin referred to the need to defend the historical truth in order to precede attempts to distort and falsify the facts of World War II, especially those to rehabilitate and even glorify the fascists and their accomplices.
In an intervention recorded in a video for the participants in the forum, the president clarified that the crimes of fascism do not have an expiration date and in the decisions made by the Nuremberg Tribunal they were recognized as crimes against humanity, the statesman recalled.
Putin observed that the court determined the term of genocide, which later became the basis of the UN Convention to combat this scourge, approved in 1948.
The Russian president also considered the defense of the decisions of the Nuremberg process as a duty of the entire world community, as they are principles that are the basis of values of the post-war world order and the norms of international law.
For the statesman, such principles now stand as the platform for constructive dialogue and cooperation, and their overshadowing or attempt to shake them would be a blow to security guarantees across the planet, Putin said.
Speaking at the forum, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out, for his part, that the Nuremberg process remains a crucial factor in strengthening global security, as it warns us about the danger of repeating past mistakes. .
75 years ago, a strong vaccine was made against the tragedy of Nazism in any of its forms and manifestations, highlighted the diplomat in reference to the aforementioned process against the fascists.
Unfortunately, the immunity acquired during the Nuremberg trial is significantly weakened in some European countries, considered the Russian head, referring to the rise of neo-fascist currents in Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, among other states in the region.
This is related to cases such as the defense of accomplices of German fascism to present them as national heroes in Ukraine or the celebration and marches of former collaborators with Nazism.
