Attempts to rewrite history pose real danger - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed serious concerns about the attempts made by some countries to use historical events as political tools.

"I once again reiterate the real danger of re-writing history and making one's historical heroism and historical claims a tool in today's politics," Lavrov said at the ceremony for laying wreaths at the Russian Foreign Ministry memorial plates on Friday.

Lavrov also said it is highly important that the number of people who oppose attempts to re-write history is increasing in Russia, Europe, and other countries.
