The law on prohibition of propaganda of totalitarian regimes, including communism, adopted today by the Parliament of Poland, is a shameful mockery of the memory of the fallen in the great Patriotic war, as it involves the demolition of the memorials in honor of the red army. This is stated in the statement of the Russian foreign Ministry posted on the Ministry website.
“Blasphemy Polish authorities have timed this decision to the Holy and tragic for us the day of the beginning of Nazi aggression against the Soviet Union. Otherwise, how shameful mockery of the memory of the victims of such actions will not name” – said the foreign Ministry.
Russian diplomats expressed confidence that many people in Poland don’t accept this “heinous behaviour”, and such laws provoke aggravation of relations between the two countries.
Note that, for the adoption of amendments to the document on “decommunization” of April 1, 2016 – 408 MPs voted – against 15 people. Its provisions do not apply to monuments found in cemeteries and not on display.
According to the Russian foreign Ministry, the monuments in honor of the heroism of the red army are the main purpose of the amendments.
