The Russian Embassy has raised concerns over the potential damage to burial sites of former Nazi concentration camps in Alderney should the controversial FAB link between the UK and France go ahead.
The Embassy has made a formal request to the UK Foreign Office asking that any remains found during construction works be treated with respect.
It follows a report on the FAB link in the Sunday Times.
They say hundreds if not thousands of Soviet prisoners of war and forced labourers perished in the Nazi camps in Alderney, and not all were buried in marked graves.
The Russian Embassy say the States of Guernsey have informed them that excavation of the cable trench would be done under archaeological supervision and that should ensure proper treatment of any human remains that are uncovered.
The group behind the FAB project insist that no remains have been disturbed and the underground cables wouldn't impact on known burial sites.
