MOSCOW, October 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian law enforcers’ decisive and professional measures to stop disorders in Western Biryulyovo, in the south of Moscow, and punish the instigators do not violate international obligations and do not demand the Russian authorities give additional assurances at the political level, Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov said.
The Russian diplomat commented on a statement by the German Foreign Ministry spokesman on the recent disorders in Moscow related to violence towards migrants from the Caucasus and Central Asia.
“The German Foreign Ministry spokesman statements saying Germany informed Russia at different levels about Berlin’s ‘concerns’ does not correspond to reality,” Dolgov said, adding, “We’d like to tell our German partners to watch the situation in their country because extremists, neo-Nazi and hate moods continue to grow and consolidate.”
“The activity of the so-called National Socialist Underground, which murdered foreigners over several years, proves this. Judging by the unhasting law suit, this danger is being realized by the German authorities,” the commissioner said.
“I want to recall about human rights organisations’ serious criticism of housing conditions for refugees in Germany. Refugees are banned to leave the territory of an area or a land where a person has been sent. Refugees are also banned to be engaged in labour activities and get access to education, adequate medical assistance etc,” Dolgov said.
“Thus, mildly speaking, the German colleagues have what to do in their country in the field of human rights and the supremacy of law,” the commissioner said.
