“International justice should be based on collective effort and enjoy international authority,” Foreign Minister Lavrov said in the German city of Nuremberg, where he arrived to attend the opening ceremony of the War Crimes Trial Courtroom Museum, dedicated the 65th anniversary of the start of the Nuremberg Trials. The event gathered officials from Russia, France, Great Britain, the U.S. and Germany.The international military tribunal over major Nazi war criminals was established at the initiative of the anti-Hitler coalition leaders. Such proceedings were destined to uncover all crimes committed by the Nazis in both Germany and the occupied territories. The Allies then set a precedent for present-day UN law enforcement agencies, since historical lessons drawn from the 30s and 40s remain just as relevant today. Nazism and neo-Nazism are still justified by certain politicians, Sergei Lavrov pointed out in his speech.”There is no other explanation for annual marches of former SS members in a number of European capital cities, the prosecution of anti-fascist veterans or the judicial recognition of the swastika as cultural heritage of the Balts. In Germany itself, calling into question the outcome of the Nuremberg Trials is a criminal offense. I believe that all those present, just as the overwhelming majority of people worldwide, are convinced that there are no and can be no terms of limitation for acts classified by the Nuremberg Tribunal as crimes against humanity,” Sergei Lavrov said.
