Putin lacks integrity for Auschwitz ceremony

It's entirely appropriate that Russian President Putin will not attend the ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz extermination camp, the portal Alfa writes: "It's clear that such commemorations are important in diplomacy. Not because of the resolutions that are adopted there, but to show respect for the innocent victims of the Nazi regime. And so that such atrocities that send shivers down the spine of every civilised person will not be repeated. But ensuring that requires at least a modicum of integrity, conscience and responsibility vis-à-vis the international community. Russia's war against Ukraine clearly demonstrates the very opposite of those qualities."
