On July 17, 2017, at Russia’s initiative, the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation adopted a joint statement denouncing the “war against monuments” and attempts to glorify Nazism. The statement gives a principled assessment of the ongoing campaign in several countries, including at the legislative and executive level, to eradicate the memory of those who liberated European countries from Nazi aggression and occupation at great sacrifice during World War II.
