MOSCOW, March 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma has proposed to to establish a CIS court of human rights in connection with the situation in Ukraine.
Violations of human rights in Ukraine raises the issue of taking appropriate measures, Deputy Head of the Committee for CIS affairs, Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots Tatyana Moskalkova said on Friday, when speaking at a meeting of the working group for legal analysis of legislative procedures and laws passed in Ukraine.
Regrettably, there is no institution in the CIS to protect the rights and interests of citizens. The situation in Ukraine prompts to raise the issue of establishing a court of human rights in the CIS, she believes. It may be similar to the European Court of Human Rights.
"Today we see double standards and [political] engagement in discussion of the situation taking place in Ukraine. CIS states will be interested to analyze such kinds of issues," she said.
