In the words of former US intelligence officer, Scott Bennett, countries that voted against this year’s November 2022 Russian sponsored resolution at the United Nations on combating Nazism betrayed their ancestors.

The countries that voted against the Russian resolution against the glorification of Nazism betrayed their ancestors who fought against Nazism during World War II, Isvestia was told by former US intelligence officer Scott Bennett.

On the eve of the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution of Russia to combat the glorification of Nazism. 120 countries voted for the adoption, 50 voted against, 10 abstained. Among those who voted against were Germany, Italy, Canada, France, Japan, Poland, Ukraine, Britain and the USA.

Rulers around the world were raised by people whose grandfathers, fathers, uncles fought against Nazism. They fought against this ideology, swastikas, racial hatred and the enslavement of other nations. It was key in World War II, an incredible number of people died fighting Nazism,” Bennett said.

According to him, what is happening now is “mocking the graves of fathers and grandfathers who fought in that war. It’s even a betrayal to continue to support this Nazism.”

“I believe that Russia is absolutely right, and she shows the rest of the world who these leaders of the countries who voted against. I think the whole world, with the exception of Europe and the United States, has more in common with Russia, [Vladimir] Putin and the Russians who oppose Nazism,” said the former US intelligence officer.

Bennett added that the West will vote against anything that “comes from Russia.”

The document entitled “Combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” is adopted annually by the UN General Assembly. After the resolution is approved by the committee, it is voted on.

Earlier, on November 5, Austria, Germany and Italy for the first time in history voted against this document. 

In her reaction, the official representative of Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, stated that only immoral figures could question the essence of this resolution.

A commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation for Human Rights noted that in 2011 representatives of these countries had “swearingly assured” the Russian side that they would never “vote against the document, which condemns the glorification of Nazism.
