MOSCOW, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. International human rights activists should be unbiased in their coverage of democratic development in Russia, Russia Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Konstantin Dolgov and Deputy Director of the Europe and Central Asia Division at Human Rights Watch Rachel Denber agreed at a meeting on Monday.
The sides discussed significant human rights issues of mutual interest — Dolgov commented on some human rights aspects in Russia, while Denber noted the importance of objective broad-minded coverage of democratic development and civil society formation in Russia.
Denber received the ministry’s report on human rights in the European Union in 2013, which highlights a number of grave human rights problems in the EU countries, such as increasing Neo-Nazism, extremism and other forms of intolerance, as well as stalling, despite urges of the international community, discrimination of Russian-speaking community in the Baltic countries.
