On 30 October, Deputy Head of the EU Delegation to the Russian Federation Sven-Olov Carlsson, together with a number of EU diplomats, will go to the Butovo shooting range to attend the commemorating event "Voice of Remembrance".
Ahead of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repressions, Ambassador Ederer said: "Such commemorations are important. One must remember past tragic events to have the knowledge and strength to prevent them from being repeated. We must never take for granted the rights and freedoms we enjoy. The European Union continues to stand firm in defending fundamental rights, rule of law and democracy as well as the UN promoting these universal values."
