26.01.2018 - Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko took part in the Commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day

On 23 January Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko joined Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev at the Commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day. International Holocaust Remembrance Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 60/7 on 1 November 2005. In 2005 the United Nations General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of Holocaust. On 27 January 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and death camp, was liberated by the Red Army. The event co-hosted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Embassy of Israel was held against the backdrop of the danger of growing neo-Nazism in Europe. Russian diplomacy has been consistently pointing at unacceptable practices in some EU countries where former Nazi fighters, including those from the SS, are honored as war veterans. This phenomenon continues despite concerns raised by the international community represented by the UN General Assembly. We call upon all states to leave up to our shared memory of Holocaust and WW2 and to never allow these atrocities to be repeated.
