MOSCOW, 16 APR – RIA Novosti. The speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko believes that around matches proposed to establish in Russia the new date of the end of the Second world war and the date of the Beslan terrorist attack raised “excessive hype”, but it should not be politicized.
the presidential Council of the Russian Federation on human rights (HRC) has asked the Federation Council to reject the bill on the establishment of September 3, the day of the end of world war II. Human rights activists note that on 3 September 2004 is the date when the attack at the school in Beslan were killed 333 people, including 186 children and 11 law enforcement officers.
“I received a letter from the HRC, we spoke at length this morning with a colleague (the head of the HRC Valery) Fadeev. I heard that there are different points of view on this issue. But honestly, I think that the hype raised around this act redundant. It’s just the act of restoration of historical justice, as deemed by our dear veterans,” – said Matvienko reporters.
