According to Konstantin Dolgov, the Russian Foreign Ministry ombudsman for human rights, democracy and the supremacy of law, said that the facts contained in the White Book confirm the systematic and, in some cases, purposeful nature of gross violations of human rights and the supremacy of the law in Ukraine.
The ombudsman said that the anti-terror operation of the Kiev authorities against peaceful civilians in southeast Ukraine; a cynical and bloody provocation at the House of Trade Unions in Odessa that claimed the lives of 48 people and the blocking of unsuitable media at any cost were graphic manifestations “of the purposeful nature of gross violations of the underlying principles of international law and norms in the field of human rights and the supremacy of the law in Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.
