NOVO-OGAREVO, June 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin told Russian Human Rights Ombudsman Vladimir Lukin at a meeting on Wednesday that he would like to meet regional human rights ombudsmen.
Lukin informed the president that the number of human rights ombudsmen in Russian regions had increased from 4 to 67. At the same time, the law classifies the post of the human rights ombudsman as an independent institution, which region can institute at their own discretion.
“I think that it would be right for the president to send an impulse in order to complete a process which needs to be completed,” Lukin said. Putin agreed that the process should be completed. “I suggest meeting your colleagues who already work in regions to discuss an entire range of problems,” the president stressed.
Lukin also suggested that meetings with the people working in regions could also be useful for the Russian head of state. He added he would contact presidential administration to discuss practical steps linked to preparation for the forthcoming meeting.
