MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow is indignant at the neo-Nazi rally in Denmark and expects Copenhagen to draw conclusions from that event, Russian Foreign Ministry Ombudsman for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Tuesday.
“We are justly indignant at the rally of several hundreds of neo-Nazis held in the second largest city of Denmark, Aarhus. The ultra-right, radicals and nationalists from the UK, Germany, Sweden and some other countries took part in the rally and shouted racist and anti-Islamic slogans. We are surprised that the ultra-right event took place with the permission of the Danish authorities,” he said.
“The ‘official’ support to extremist meetings and connivance with racist and neo-Nazi trends will promote the growth of intolerance in the society and intensify the already tangible radical feelings in Europe,” the ombudsman said.
“The attempts to play on religious feelings of people with the narrow political goals, which have nothing to do with the genuine aspirations of the overwhelming majority of people in the aforesaid countries, are particularly dangerous,” he said.
“The Danish administration should have prevented such a meeting, which discredits the policy of any state in the sphere of human rights, democracy and the rule of law,” Dolgov said.
He expressed the hope that “Copenhagen will draw relevant conclusions, whose necessity is dictated by international obligations of Denmark,” he said.
