MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. Violations of human rights in the EU are connected with the Brussels’ politicized approach toward this subject, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Monday at a State Duma hearing on Russian-EU relations.
"These concessions allowed to hold the door open for Nazi ideas prohibited by the international law," Dolgov said.
"The negative effect of anti-Russian sanctions has its humanitarian reflection in EU, adding up to the problems in the social-economic situation in Europe," the commissioner said. "The situation is far from perfect. Ultra-rights [forces] are striving for power," he stressed.
"The problem situation with fulfilling agreements on human rights continues in the EU. Almost all EU countries are guilty [of violating human rights], the list [of violators] is lengthy," he noted.
