ROZHDESTVENO, April 05 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry was continuing receiving many letters from residents of Ukraine who asked to protect their rights and freedoms, the head of the ministry's department of CIS countries, Viktor Sorokin, told a meeting of deputies of the party A Just Russia.

"We in the Foreign Ministry have received sacks of letters during all these months. Ordinary citizens ask to protect their basic rights to have free access to mass media and freely talk in their native language," Sorokin said.

The ministry is concerned over "the very serious factor of infringement of the freedom of media in Ukraine." In fact, all the Russian television channels were closed, he noted.

Cases of desecrating of monuments frequently committed in Ukraine also caused concern, he said.

"We will continue to defend all our approaches in the United Nations Organization, the OSCE and the Council of Europe. We will do everything to defend our interests in the international arena," Sorokin stressed.
