MOSCOW, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. The United States claims to be a perfect democracy but grossly violates its own human rights obligations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, April 9.

“It is very regrettable when a state that positions itself as a global model and ardent advocate of democracy not only intentionally fails to notice its own flaws in promoting and protecting human rights and to comply with the recommendations issued by international supervisory bodies, but also grossly violates its obligations in this field,” the ministry said.

“We hope that the recommendations issued by the Human Rights Committee and aimed at ensuring the fulfilment of the US obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights will be strictly complied with,” the ministry said.

It also stressed that it was inadmissible to justify the unlawful interference by the US authorities in the citizens’ private contacts, which is often politically motivated, by the need to ensure nationals security.
