CIS’s statement on the Second World War

The heads of Member States of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) adopted a statement on the 80th Anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War (1939-1945). The document is available here: http://bit.ly/2MYKRPJ.

The signatory countries underline that the Second World War, which was the greatest tragedy of the XX century, became possible because of disability of international community to create an effective system of collective security as well as due to maleficent policy of appeasement of the aggressor.

The CIS member states condemn attempts of justification and glorification of Nazism and its accomplices and call on all countries of the world to resist reconsideration and falsification of the history. They underscore inadmissibility of revision of the outcomes of the Second World War and note the key role of the peoples of the Soviet Union in crushing of Nazism.
