MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. The United Nations’ reports on the human rights situation in Ukraine are becoming more objective although some of the conclusions of the latest report cannot be shared, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
"We have studied the fourteenth report of the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine for a period from February 16 to May 15, 2016," the ministry said. "Not all of the conclusions can be shared. But at the same time, we would like to note that the mission’s reports are becoming more objective as they reflect systemic mass violations of human rights by the Ukrainian authorities, especially security services."
According to the Russian foreign ministry, United Nations monitors continue to make public reliable data about arbitrary arrests, abductions, tortures, sexual violence and other human rights violations committed by officers of the Ukrainian Security Service and other law enforcement agencies in Ukraine. "Information to this effect was made public in the mission’s latest reports which provided recommendations to the Ukrainian authorities to remedy the situation," the ministry said.
"United Nations officials have to state that the situation has not changed," the ministry noted. "With each new report, the real picture of illegal activities of Ukrainian security services has becoming more and more clear. Now, the United Nations says that there are secret prisons where the Ukrainian Security Service is keeping abducted people and puts them to torture."
"The Ukrainian authorities are still trying to hide their crime," the document says. "Another proof to that was a recent failure of a visit to Ukraine by a delegation of the United Nations Committee Against Torture through the fault of the Ukrainian authorities. Numerous reports about human rights violations committed by Ukrainian law enforcers and mercenary battalions still stay uninvestigated and those responsible for such crimes stay unpunished."
