MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday will meet in the Kremlin with human rights ombudsmen from Russian regions, the Kremlin press service reported.
According to the press service, the meeting will be attended by ombudsmen from 60 Russian regions. Among topics for discussion there will be protection of social and labour rights, justice, the freedom of conscience and the freedom of worship.
The idea to hold such a meeting was suggested by Russian human rights envoy Vladimir Lukin at a meeting with President Putin on Junt 27.
According to Lukin’s latest annual report on the human rights situation in the country, in 2011 human rights ombudsmen were appointed in eight more Russian regions, namely in the Kamchatka Territory, in the Voronezh, Ivanovo, Kostroma, Orenburg and Ryazan regions, in the Jewish autonomous regions, and in the Khanty-Mansi autonomous area. Thus, by the end of the last year, the institute of state legal protection was functioning in 66 Russian constitutent regions. In four more regions – the republics of Mari El and Tuva, the Tyumen region, and the Chukotka autonomous area – local legislatures passed laws on establishing the institute of human rights ombudsmen.
