United States’ And Ukraine’s Pro-Nazi Position Exposed At The United Nations General Assembly After Becoming The Only Two Countries To Vote Against Resolution Condemning Nazism

Russia had recently co-sponsored a resolution denouncing Nazism, neo-Nazism, and all forms of bigotry at the United Nations General Assembly. The United States and Ukraine voted no, while about 49 nations, mostly US allies, abstained from voting. According to the Russian permanent mission to the United Nations, the resolution on “tackling celebration of Nazism, neo-Nazism, and other activities” that contribute to racism, xenophobia, and intolerance was accepted with 130 votes in favor on Thursday. In the past few years, Russia has put forward the proposal yearly, and the United States and Ukraine have regularly opposed it.

The resolution, which was co-sponsored by Russia and over 30 other UN members, expresses worry against any sort of glorifying Nazism, such as erecting monuments and staging public parades commemorating the Waffen SS, or designating them national liberation groups, along with other issues. Russia has long objected to Ukraine and the three Baltic nations – Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia – recognizing Nazi Germany-affiliated persons and organizations during WWII.

In 2020, Washington’s UN envoy claimed that prohibiting the praising of Nazism would violate the US Constitution’s First Amendment guarantee of free expression. The United States has also ludicrously criticized Russia for using the resolution to spread “disinformation narratives” about neo-Nazism in the Baltics and Ukraine. The resolution also calls on member states to “eradicate all forms of racial discrimination by all appropriate means, including legislation,” and states that discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, or belief, such as “neo-Nazism, Islamophobia, Christianophobia, and antisemitism,” adversely affects not only the persecuted groups, but humanity as a whole.
