Following British media reports that the construction works for the France - Alderney - Britain energy project have damaged the burial sites of former Nazi concentration camps in Alderney, the Embassy has formally requested the relevant authorities of the United Kingdom and the Bailiwick of Guernsey to ensure that all possible effort is made to identify the human remains found during the construction works and give them a dignified burial. The Embassy has also offered help with the identification of the said remains, should any sign point to them being of Soviet citizens.
