Latvia and Russia to take care of military cemeteries

Latvia and Russia have obliged to take bilateral care of military cemeteries.
      On Wednesday the Latvian Seim (Parliament) has approved unanimously the agreement with Russia on bilateral protection of military cemeteries.
      There are several cemeteries in Latvia where about 150 thousand Soviet soldiers are buried, in Russia there are 109 cemeteries where Latvian citizens including Latvian riflemen and political prisoners after 1940 are buried.
      According to the agreement the two countries should maintain the cemeteries.
      The necessity to sign such an agreement appeared after the incident of removing the Soviet monument to the Bronze Soldier in Estonia last spring which caused mass disorders.
