Russia disappointed over Canada’s vote against UNGA resolution


 Russia is concerned by Canada’s rejection of the United Nations General Assembly resolution advocating against the glorification of Nazism, the Russian Embassy in Canada published on its Telegram site on Friday.

“We are deeply concerned that consecutive Canadian Cabinets for decades have been harboring Nazi henchmen, Yaroslaw Hunka among them, and turning a blind eye on continued praising their memory in Canada,” the Embassy posted.

By these actions the Trudeau regime violates international laws including the decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal, it added.

Earlier today, the United Nations Third Committee on Friday adopted a Russian-drafted resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism and neo-Nazism.

This action by Canada follows a recent mistake by the Canadian Parliament in celebrating former Nazi officer Yaroslav Hunka and applauding him.

The Russia-drafted document, titled “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” was co-sponsored by Belarus and Syria. The resolution was adopted by 112 votes for, with 50 against and 14 abstaining. Ukraine, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and other EU countries were among those that voted against.
