MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Russia will take efforts to prevent attempts to use human rights measures as an instrument of pressure and interference into domestic affairs of third countries, says a new concept of the Russian foreign policy approved by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday.
"Russia is committed to universal democratic value, including human rights and freedoms, and sees its tasks in countering attempts to use human rights concepts as an instrument of political pressure and interference into domestic affairs of states, including with an aim of destabilization and change of legitimate governments," the document says.
The concept also envisages to "defend the rights and legal interests of Russian citizens abroad on the basis of the norms of international law and international agreements of Russia," and to "expand international cooperation for the purposes of enhancing protection of the rights and legal interests of Russian children living abroad."
Apart from that, Russia will "resolutely rebuff any manifestations of extremism, neo-Nazism, racial discrimination, aggressive nationalism, antisemitism and xenophobia, attempts at falsifying history and using it to whip up confrontation and revanchism in global politics, attempts to revise the results of World War Two and will promote de-politicization of history-related discussions."
Moscow plans to "involve civil society institutions to the resolution of international problems in order to enhance the efficiency of Russia’s foreign policy" and to "expand cooperation with international and non-government human rights organizations to strengthen the generally-recognized human rights norms, to links them with personal responsibility for one’s actions and to uproot the policy of double standards in this sphere."
