MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. “The human rights in Ukraine have been reduced to complete fiction,” MP Alexander Sidyakin, who is a member of the Russian delegation to PACE, told Itar-Tass on Thursday. "Ukraine today is a country where elementary human rights, including the right to life, have been violated. Today's authorities in Ukraine cannot guarantee the right to life; Ukrainian citizens have been shot in broad daylight by their fellow citizens — provocateurs, while the authorities refuse to investigate these crimes," Sidyakin said.
The MP strongly criticized the infringements on the right of speech in Ukraine. He reminded of a recent ban imposed on television broadcasts of Russian TV channels and pro-Russian channels in Ukraine. "In Ukraine, journalists have been prosecuted for the expression of any point of view if it does not coincide with the Maidan position. The freedom of speech in Ukraine is no more than a mere fiction now. The rights to labor, social welfare support and pension allowances have also been violated," Sidyakin said.
“Russia has been carrying out a humanitarian mission in Crimea. Europe has turned a blind eye on the situation because it suits both Europe and the United States,” the MP said.
Deputy Head of the Duma committee on public associations and religious organizations Mikhail Markelov focused on violence in Ukraine and disrespect for human rights of the population, in particular, the Russian-speaking population. “Having legalized the activities of the Right Sector and other radical groups the illegitimate authorities have stripped the population of Ukraine of state protection,” Markelov said.
