Russia is grateful to Israel for giving a correct assessment of the World War II events and condemning Poland’s decision to demolish Soviet monuments, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

“We are grateful to those in Israel who give a correct assessment to these events, who condemn the demolition of monuments dedicated to Soviet soldiers,” Putin said at a meeting of the Presidential Council for interethnic relations.

On Monday, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed a law regulating the demolition of monuments and renaming of objects associated with the Communist legacy and propaganda, or any other "totalitarian regime."

On Wednesday, Russia's State Duma (lower house of parliament) adopted an appeal to European lawmakers in connection with Poland's decision, urging them to resist the destruction of monuments and memorial to the soldiers who liberated Europe from Nazism. The Parliament of Israel adopted a similar appeal.

According to Poland's Institute of National Remembrance, the law will apply to 230 monuments commemorating the soldiers of the Soviet Red Army, among many others. The new law though only targets the monuments intended for public viewing, therefore leaving some monuments exempt from removal. For example, monuments located in cemeteries will remain untouched.
