A total of 130 states voted in favor of the document, 49 abstained, and two nations (the United States and Ukraine) were against it in the vote held on Thursday, according to a report by TASS news agency on Friday.

Grigory Lukantsev, Deputy Director of the Foreign Ministry’s Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights, said that the adoption of the text with the widest possible support of UN member states will make a real contribution to the eradication of racism and xenophobia.

Lukantsev explained that the resolution underlines the inadmissibility of “glorifying those involved in the crimes of Nazism, included the laundering of the former members of the SS organization, including the Waffen-SS units, recognized as criminals by the Nuremberg Trial.”
