Canadian Prime Minister recalled the importance of respect for human rights and fragility of freedom.
The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau on the anniversary of the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact stated that the Soviet and Nazi regimes committed mass crimes and neglect of human rights, reports UKRINFORM.
“Over the next years after the signing of the Pact the Soviet and Nazi regimes had carried out the attack on national and personal freedoms throughout Europe. They have deprived millions of people of life and livelihood and subjected to countless men, women and children, unheard of atrocities,” said canadian Prime Minister.
Trudeau added that many victims of “bloody regime” had to leave their homes in search of refuge.
“Their life stories emphasize the importance of universal human rights and remind us of the vulnerability of freedom,” he stressed and called upon to defend human rights, principles of democracy and justice .
We will remind, the European day of remembrance for victims of Stalinism and Nazism is annually celebrated on August 23 in the day of the signing of the Treaty of non-aggression between Germany and the Soviet Union, which divided Europe into spheres of influence.
Earlier, the Minister of defence of Poland Anthony Macierewicz said that the Soviet Union was in collusion with Nazi Germany, whose goal was the destruction of the poles.
