MOSCOW, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the human rights situation is Ukraine “has one-sided, politicized and biased character and give no picture of the real situation in that country,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
This report “ignores a whole range of flagrant violations of human rights by the self-proclaimed authorities, such as abductions, tortures, extrajudicial killings, encroachment upon the court system’s independence, crackdown on the mass media and civil society,” he said. “In general, it looks like the report was fabricated to fit prearranged conclusions to arrived at which there was no need to visit Ukraine," Lukashevich said.
