MOSCOW, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Force is inadmissible to struggle for human rights in Ukraine, Russia’s Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov said.
Commenting on the situation in Ukraine on Monday, the commissioner said, “Democracy should develop only by evolution and peaceful means.”
The diplomat described the seizure of administrative buildings in western regions of Ukraine as unconstitutional. “We’re concerned about nationalist and anti-Semitic actions,” he said.
“We call to take weighty approaches in order to prevent outside interference. If violence is a method to protect human rights, the international community should give an assessment,” Dolgov said.
