MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Moscow calls on all international organizations to make the Kiev regime stop ignoring commitments in the spheres of human rights and the rule of law, the Russian Foreign Ministry's human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov said on Thursday.
Moreover, Russia strongly condemns the meetings and torch-light processions of the neo-Nazis that have been reported in Kiev and other Ukrainian cities, he added. "It is important to unite efforts of all members of the international community, including constructive-minded political forces in Ukraine, to decisively counteract the heroization of Nazism and the manifestations of racism, xenophobia, aggressive nationalism and chauvinism."
The diplomat said Russia hopes that the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Council of Europe will “finally fulfill their task and influence the Kiev authorities who continue openly ignoring Ukraine’s international commitments in the spheres of human rights and the rule of law.”
“We are deeply concerned and feel indignation in connection with the reports from Kiev and a number of other Ukrainian cities, including videos of well-organized meetings and torch-light processions of neo-Nazis of all kinds with the SS and Bandera symbols with extensive quoting of Hitler’s man-hateful statements and other Nazi criminals and their Ukrainian accomplices,” Russian Foreign Ministry’s Konstantin Dolgov said in a commentary.
He also said Moscow has qualified these actions as “the gravest violation of the fundamental principles and norms of international law and decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal."
Earlier this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed concerns over growing neo-Nazi tendencies in the Baltic states and in Ukraine, saying that the vaccine against the Nazi virus developed at the Nuremberg trials is losing its efficiency in Europe.
