The Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia tried to convince to learn the lessons of the Nuremberg trials
Zam. The public Prosecutor of the Russian Federation Alexander Zvyagintsev told those present international legal forum in St. Petersburg about the lessons of the Nuremberg trial of Nazi war criminals, saying about the illegality of attempts to rewrite history and calling to draw the appropriate conclusions.

Zvyagintsev said that international law is currently influenced by political prejudice and national egoism." Who politically bagging international court on the events in South Ossetia and does Not give the opportunity to prosecute the events of 1998? Why the court is in idle mode in relation to the events in southeastern Ukraine, where killed innocent children, old men and women?", - announced Zvyagintsev few questions.

He said on the anniversary of the Victory, and about 70-year anniversary of the Nuremberg trials." So sad to watch at the beginning of these observances attempts to rewrite the results of world war II, " said Commissioner of the state office of public Prosecutor.

He also complained about " the glorification of the Nazis, these small insignificant servant of the devil." In his vision, the aim is " to apply the historical insinuatio For political games and to embroil the whole country."

"We were advised to forget these events, But where to find such an axe that memory We cut off?" said Zvyagintsev.

To understand the events of the previous from which to draw some conclusions for the future, He gave those present an international forum lecture about the Nuremberg trials and the role of the USSR in it.


Zvyagintsev said that the USSR ever since the first days of the war has drawn the international court of justice, although Western leaders " wanted to deal with the criminals, Not caring about the legal component ".

"Prime Minister (UK) Winston Churchill declared that they must be executed without trial. Even easier was looking for this information is the generals, " said Zvyagintsev. He added that During the war were expressed to liquidate the German General staff, all the personnel of the SS, the entire Nazi party right down to the grassroots offices." Such a fate may be, would have expected Germany unless the firm position of the USSR ", - said Deputy Prosecutor General.

Even after agreeing on the necessity of the court, the Commissioners of the anti-Hitler coalition countries differently imagined the progress. As explained Zvyagintsev, Churchill suggested to make the process is Not legal, but political, and the U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt wished to close it from the press.

"But the court was transparent, As insisted by our country. It was issued to 60 thousand passes in the courtroom, 250 of the 350 provided To correspondents, " said Deputy attorney General, noting the importance of the openness of justice.



as a result the allied Nations agreed on a "swift and fair" trial against 24 Nazi war criminals, But the question arose about what system of law to judge them - Anglo-Saxon or continental." The judge from North America was shocked by the statements of commissioners of the Soviet delegation about the Anglo-Saxon system of law, " said Zvyagintsev.

in the end, had produced "a strong international legal framework" in which the defendant was allowed to use the services of lawyers, to testify and question witnesses, well acquainted with all materials of the case upon request. Zam. The attorney General added that as a result of the protection It is 2 times more evidence and protection it took 3 times more time than the prosecution.

"Not everything went smoothly in the process and During the investigation," said Zvyagintsev. He drew attention to the difference between the approach of all countries to this process.

"the Prosecutor of North America had presidential ambitions, and the Prosecutor of the USSR to be just couldn't," He said.- All the studies point to the rigidity of the Soviet judges, who supposedly advocated hanging. In reality, the death penalty asked in a persistent form, the Prosecutor, and the judges did Not share his point of view " - has told zamgenprokurora on procedural points.
