MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Russia intends to call on foreign partners to take a non-politicized position on human rights violations in Ukraine at the upcoming session of the UN Security Council on October 24, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“We will pay attention to the off-the-scale rampage of nationalist moods and rough pressure amid preparations for the parliamentary elections on opposition parties and politicians,” Lukashevich said.
“In any way this is not inter-related to Kiev’s loud statements on the commitment to European democratic values,” he said.
An official of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights will speak at the UN Security Council session on Ukraine initiated by the United Kingdom, Lukashevich said.
“We strongly hope that the discussion will be objective and impartial what, unfortunately, the reports by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights monitoring mission to Ukraine lack,” he said.
