The Russian Presidential Human Rights Council (HRC) said it considers it unacceptable to postpone the end date of World War II from September 2 to a day later. The reason is that September 3 is Remembrance Day for the victims of the Beslan terrorist attack.

The HRC said that residents of the Far East, most members of the Council consider the decision to postpone the date to be erroneous. As noted in a letter to the head of the HRC, Valery Fadeev, to the chairman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, the initiative will also be met with a lack of understanding by the families of the victims of the Beslan terrorist attack. Speakers of the Federation Council were asked to take into account the position of the HRC when considering the bill.

This week, the State Duma adopted a law on a new memorable date - the Day of the end of World War II. However, parliamentarians propose celebrating it not historically on September 2, but a day later. There, the date transfer is explained by the fact that September 3 symbolizes the transition from a state of war to peace.
