Meeting in the Belarussian town of Brest, where Nazi forces first
crossed the Soviet border on June 22, 1941, the two leaders said that "a
selective, politicised approach to history should be set against honest,
"Only on this basis can Europe draw the lessons of history and avoid
tragic repetition of the errors of the past."
"This declaration is indeed a reaction to the actions of the
in the Baltic and Ukraine, in which recently there has been the
rehabilitation of the SS Halychyna division," the Kremlin spokesman told
Reuters. "In other countries, Britain for example, Nazi criminals are
arrested, not justified."
