MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Presidential Council on Civil Society and Human Rights continues registreing violations of the Minsk agreements in persecution of dissidents in Ukraine, member of the council, director of the Moscow Human Rights Bureau Alexander Brod told TASS on Monday.
"We continue to register violations of the Minsk agreements by the Ukrainian authorities, the persecution of dissidents and journalists," he said.
According to Brod, the situation in the Donbas region "remains alarming". "Observers see amassment of Ukrainian military equipment," the human rights activists noted.
The annual report of the Moscow Human Rights Bureau (obtained by TASS) says that "the Ukrainian state remains one of the most dangerous places in Europe for media representatives - both its own journalists and foreign correspondents" and gives facts of journalists’ rights violations.
"At the international level, massive and systematic violations concerning the respect for freedom of speech and protection of journalists’ rights remained unnoticed throughout 2015. No pressure was exerted on the country’s authorities to ensure compliance with international obligations in this area, which was perceived by official Kiev as a kind of carte blanche," the document says.
The report also mentions facts when massive political actions were prohibited and activists arrested, and the law on decommunization passed in Ukraine is described as "anti-democratic and anti-European.".
