MOSCOW, March 06, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for human rights and supremacy of law, Konstantin Dolgov, has called on Western partners to show proper reaction to the overtly Russophobic or anti-Semitic declarations made by leaders of Ukrainian extremists in speeches on the Maidan - Kiev’s notorious Independence Square.
He said it Thursday in the course of consultations with his French counterpart, Patrizianna Sparacino-Thiellay, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a press release.
As they discussed the situation in Ukraine, Dolgov called his interlocutrice’s attention to the activity of “marginalized radical and nationalistic forces” and to the importance of “punishing the paramilitaries guilty of killing peaceful civilians and law enforcement officers.”
“The sides discussed a broad spectrum of pressing international problems related to humanitarian issues and human rights in a constructive tonality,” the report said.
“Konstantin Dolgov may emphasis on the need for a more active assistance on the part of France and the entire EU in the elimination of encroachments on the legitimate rights and interests of the Russian-speaking population in the former Soviet Baltic republics - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, including the problem of statelessness, which is shameful for today’s Europe.”
The sides agreed to maintain a regular dialogue between the Russian and French Foreign Ministries’ special envoys for human rights.
As part of the visit, Dolgov also held a presentation of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s report on the situation with human rights with the EU. The presentation was done in Paris on the premises of the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation.
“Russia’s approach based on the principle of equitable international dialogue and cooperation in human rights and supremacy of law invited an encouraging reaction among the French audiences,” the Foreign Ministry’s report said.
