The international human rights movement “ the World Without Nazism “ it is revolted potakatelstvom Latvia to fascists and xenophobes
the International human rights movement « the World Without Nazism » with indignation has conceived the decision of the Latvian parliament to reject the offer of opposition on expression of mistrust and displacement from a post of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, a member of political association « Unity » Girtsa Valdis Kristovskisa.
Kristovskis is got mixed up in the loud scandal connected with frankly fascist, ksenofobskimi by statements.
« We call the Latvian parliament and the government once again to consider expediency of a finding on fast of such odious figure, and the international community – expediency of dialogue with the minister – the xenophobe » - it is told in the statement of the International human rights movement « the World without nazism “ sent in bureau “ in Northern Europe “.
« Girts Valdis Kristovskis is known nationalist enough, rusofobskimi for moods. One of mottoes of the political association headed by Kristovskisom – « For the Latvian Latvia! » - obviously enough assumes assimilation of the Russian-speaking population of the country. Its negative statements concerning a Victory Day on May, 9th and a whole-hearted support of commemorating of Day of the legionary on March, 16th do not leave doubts in predilections of the minister » - authors of the document remind.
« the Oppositional block of the Latvian parliament in the requirement about resignation of Minister for Foreign Affairs Kristovskisa has accurately and unambiguously stated unacceptability of a finding on so responsible fast of the person with such outlook. However, ruling coalition, storing adherence to the ambitions, has rejected this requirement. It is especially symbolical that there was it on November, 9th, in an anniversary « Crystal night » Dn intoned by the world community and #1104; m against fascism and anti-Semitism » - authors of the statement conclude.
