Poland Suggests Russia Jointly Commemorate Soviet Prisoners of War

Polish Foreign Ministry suggests that Russia and Poland pay homage to the Soviet prisoners of war lost in World War II and buried in Poland.

      The Ministry points out that after attaining its national sovereignty in 1989 Poland did not abolish any cemetery of the Russian and Soviet soldiers. All the cemeteries are publicly-funded in line with international conventions and the Polish legislation.

      "Poland states its readiness  to implement these tasks together, which can have a positive influence on rapprochement of the Polish and Russian stands regarding the memory" — the message says.

      The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs made the statement after the demolition of the monument to the Soviet general Ivan Chernyakhovsky in the city of Penenzhno in the north of Poland.

      Earlier the Russian Ministry of Defence conveyed deep outrage over the indifference of the Polish authorities that admitted of dismantling the monument.
