GENEVA, February 28. /TASS/. Moscow hopes the United Nations human rights agencies will put pressure on Kiev to comply with the Minsk agreements, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said at the high-level segment of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session on Tuesday.
"The situation in Ukraine that has not normalized after the anti-Constitutional coup is a source of concern," he said. "With the connivance of the authorities, ultra-radical forces stepped up their activities, including those openly using Nazi slogans and calling for ethnic cleansing."
According to Gatilov, Kiev, under various pretexts, "is shying away from complying with the Minsk agreements, including the constitutional reform, under which legitimate rights and interests of citizens in eastern Ukraine must be ensured."
"As a result, we are witnessing another round of tensions and escalation of the fratricidal war," Gatilov said. "The ultra-right forces continue to be rampant, with the authorities in Kiev being unable to bridle them. The extremists have gone as far as blocking transportation routes and preventing coal supplies from Donbass. Due to this, social and economic rights of residents of many Ukrainian regions are violated purposefully and on a massive scale."
Moscow hopes that the UN human rights and humanitarian agencies "will seek to normalize the situation and accomplish the tasks determined by the Minsk agreements."
