  V. Landsbergis in EP Plenary session, Strasbourg, 21/04/08

2008 04 24

Mr. President, Colleagues,

While talking, debating, and approaching essential common position on valuation of crimes of totalitarian regimes in Europe, the one obstacle is most evident as a barrier for a faster moral and legislative success.

That main obstacle is hardly understandable position of to-day's Russian government as far as crimes committed in the stalinist past of the USSR are touched.

Instead distancing with proper condemnation of gross crimes against humanity, war crimes and other wrongdoings, Russia's ruling elite is not following good example of denazified Germany. No, soviet Fuehrer Stalin is praised, his own and his gang's crimes denied or marginalised, victims humiliated and mocked. This strange political behaviour, so detrimental for Russia itself, can not tear out the truth about deeds but continues to affect wrongly our European standards and fairness of valuations. We should realize, how much such hypocrisy and dual standards practices are helpful for various neo-nazis, etc.

If anyone says: well, before official Russia changes its mind we have to freeze ours and follow Kremlin's mind, or to postpone our valuations and decisions, - that is entirely and deeply wrong stance.

No matter, how harshly Russian state-hired political historians will try to rewrite European history of the facts, the both bloodiest international tyrannies of 20th century along with smaller national dictatorships should and will be assessed properly. It has to be the best European assistance for future Russia.
