The document recommends that states take appropriate concrete measures to prevent the revision of the history and results of the Second World War and the denial of crimes against humanity and war crimes. Steps must be taken, including in the legislative field and in the field of education.

The authors of the resolution strongly condemn the incidents that are connected with the glorification and propaganda of Nazism. We are talking, in particular, about the application of pro-Nazi graffiti and drawings, including on monuments to victims of World War II.

The document calls on countries to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination. In particular, if circumstances require it, at the legislative level.
