“The contains admits that if for many peoples the Red Army was the one that rescued them from enslavement, for the Jews it was the one that rescued them from complete annihilation,” said Vladimir Pliss, the head of communications department of the Congress of Jewish Religious Organizations and Associations in Russia (KEROOR), at a press conference in Moscow today, on February 12, a REGNUM correspondent informs.
“Such things are never forgotten. Therefore, when we say that Roman Shukhevych participated in retaliatory actions not only against Jews, Poles and Russian, but against those as well who was fighting against the Nazis, we cannot accept it easily. How do you imagine that: Shukhevych was killing civilians, fought against the Red Army that was combating and finally won over fascism, while we, the Jews, will be keeping be silent today?” asked the KEROOR representative.
“Joseph Lapid, the Yad Vashem Memorial director, made the announcement that the museum disposes has an extensive dossier confirming participation of Shukhevych and the people he led in massacres in Lvov and in other cities. Only one thing is needed to publish them, it is an official statement of the Ukrainian leadership. If there are Ukrainian journalists here then let them ask the Ukrainian leadership why there is no such inquiry,” Pliss said.
“In Russia, whatever problems the Jews face here, the attitude of both common people citizens and politicians, do not admit any opportunity of rehabilitating the Nazi crimes,” stressed the KEROOR representative.
