Russian Embassy in Bangladesh, Russian House in Dhaka, and informational data support of Russian non-profit organization “Alexander Pechersky Foundation” jointly hosted an exhibition on “Nuremberg Trials: the view from Moscow” and the film screening “Nuremberg.”
During the inauguration, the program ambassador of the Russian Federation to Bangladesh Alexander V. Mantytskiy noted that the trials over a major Nazi war began in Nuremberg, which went down in history as the Verdict of Nations, Russia being the liberator of Europe from the Nazi plague and one of the originators of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.
He reminded the Nuremberg Tribunal was held to bring a harsh but fair judgment to the Nazis and promote a comprehensive assessment of the tragic lessons of the Second World War and the causes of the misanthropic ideology of Nazism.
The Russian diplomat stressed that despite this, the ideology and practices of the Third Reich had been revived in several European countries, above all Ukraine and the Baltics, on a new, national-state, basis, and that’s why Russia will continue to vigorously, and consistently oppose any attempts to falsify history, to glorify Nazi criminals and their henchmen, and to oppose the revision of the internationally recognized outcomes of World War II, including the Nuremberg rulings.
Bangladeshi prominent politicians, representatives of educational institutions, students from various colleges and universities, Russian compatriots, and journalists were present at the event, read a media release.
