MOSCOW, July 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s public organizations should be more actively involved in informing the world community about the situation in Ukraine, Russia’s Foreign Ministry human rights commissioner said.
“Our colleagues from international human rights organizations are starting to react to the events in Ukraine. UN High Commissioner for Refugees (Navi Pillay) called on the Kiev authorities to stop crimes against civilians,” the Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov said at the Public Chamber on Monday.
“The work yields results. It will be more effective if public organizations, including the Public Chamber, take a more active part in this process,” he said.
“There are many international platforms: the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) and the Council of Europe. These organizations have a structure that is related with the non-governmental sector,” Dolgov said.
“Over the years, we’ve heard our Western colleagues insist on involving non-governmental organizations more actively. Now the time has come,” he said.
“The West’s reaction is another matter. Not everyone wants to hear the truth. Not everyone wants to talk with eyewitnesses,” Dolgov said.
“The non-governmental sector is a very important channel for informing the world community about the situation in Ukraine,” he said.
