In March, the Investigative Committee decided to combine criminal cases on the atrocities of the Nazis against the civilian population into one - on the genocide of the peoples of the USSR.

As the chairman of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin noted, the DNA of the dead Soviet citizens is being established to investigate the facts of genocide.

He also called for the development of common positions on the recognition and consolidation of the fact of the genocide of the Soviet people.
