UNITED NATIONS, November 22. /TASS/. The third committee of the UN General Assembly on Friday adopted a resolution urging countries to adopt more efficient measures to struggle against the heroization of Nazism and other forms of racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance.
The resolution expresses concerns over the spread across the world of various extremist political parties, movements and groups, including neo-Nazis as well as racist extremist movements and ideologies.
The text also warns against glorification of the Nazi movement and former members of the Waffen-SS organization and erecting monuments and memorials to them.

The resolution unequivocally condemns any denial of the Holocaust and calls for ensuring the ratification and implementation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
So, do you now understand? Probably not. Canada, US and Ukraine, and quite probably the EU, sees this resolution as an excuse for Russian President Putin to invade eastern Ukraine to save the ethnic Russians there from racial discrimination. It's that simple.
He wants to be able to say that he's just acting in response to the UN resolution and is therefore justified in lopping off another piece of Ukraine. I'm surprised he tried something so obvious; I thought he was more clever than that, unless I've missed something.
