He pointed to the illegality of the creation of the Soviet Union and urged not to consider rehabilitation of the victims of repression as a compensation for the harm caused to the victim by the perpetrator.

“the Russian Federation does not continue themselves in the law, and replaces in its territory, the state, illegally created once, and oblige her to consider the consequences of its activities, including political repression,” said aranovsky.

He believes that Russia should not be associated with the “totalitarian crimes”, either in person or through the succession.
