MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow continues to collect information about violations of ethnic Russians' rights in Ukraine and will publish them shortly, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, March 26.
The ministry said it was “surprised by the irresponsible and unfounded statement of Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yevgen Perebyinis about ‘growing xenophobia in Russia’.”
“The so-called facts he cited have no proof. Kiev is trying once again to shift the blame,” the ministry said.
“Unlike Ukrainian far-right forces which openly march in Ukrainian cities, wearing Nazi symbols, eulogize Bandera and other nationalist henchmen, and desecrate monuments to liberator soldiers, Russia is actively preparing to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Odessa, Kerch, Sevastopol, Simferopol and other cities from the Nazi invaders. However, Kiev seems to have other priorities now,” the ministry said.
“Moscow continues to gather and systematize numerous facts of gross violations of the rights of the Russian-speaking population and representatives of other ethnic communities in Ukraine by homebred ultranationalists and neo-Nazis. This information will be made public in the very near future,” the ministry said.
