WARSAW, September 19. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has stepped aside from unbiased assessment of the situation in Ukraine, a high-ranking Russian foreign ministry official said on Monday.
"The situation in the sphere of human rights protection activities within the OSCE is vividly reflected in the pattern of behavior the organization has chosen concerning the developments in Ukraine," Anatoly Viktorov, director of the ministry’s humanitarian cooperation and human rights department, said at the opening of the annual OSCE Human Dimension Implementation Meeting.
"The OSCE has actually steppes aside from unbiased analysis of the situation in that country where an armed conflict triggered by the West-sponsored state coup with the use of force has been in place for the third years running," he said.
"Facts of mass violations of human rights in Ukraine, including the right to life, actually receive no due assessment from the organization (OSCE) and its relevant structures," Viktorov said. "Instead, the OSCE has been turned by Washington and Brussels into a platform for propaganda exercises."
"We would like to point that the West’s course towards abandonment of constructive and equal cooperation is destructive. We strongly call to abandon the policy of pressure on sovereign states and establish a consensus-based dialogue," the Russian diplomat underscored.
