MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Turkey’s war crime charges against Russia are absurd, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, has told a news conference.

"There is only one way of replying to such accusations: that’s guilty conscience speaking. It reflects the gist of the situation," Dolgov said. "We’ve heard many absurd claims going beyond the bounds of diplomatic etiquette. These claims are absurd and far-fetched."

He believes that in this way Turkish politicians are trying to distract attention from systemic and crude violations of human rights in Turkey.

"They are going ahead with massive air strikes against the territory of sovereign Syria. That’s crude violation of the rule of law in principle. Civilians are dying. Turkey is trying to put the blame at Russia’s door."

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said several days ago that a Russian ballistic missile had allegedly hit a hospital and school in Syria.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Thursday said no evidence confirming the Russian air group’s alleged responsibility for the destruction of hospitals in Syria had been presented.
