GENEVA, April 15, 4:41 /ITAR-TASS/. UN has warned about the dangers posed by nationalistic rhetoric in Ukraine, which may affect the situation in the country.
A report on the observance of human rights in Ukraine drawn up by the UN Assistant Secretary General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic says this problem has particular significance now that the country is getting closer to the presidential election scheduled for May 25.
Propagation of ideas of ethnic, racial and religious hatred on the part of some political forces and separate individuals, which only serves as instigation to discrimination and animosity, as well as the nationalistic rhetoric that made itself manifest during protests on Kiev’s Independence Square may wield a very heavy impact on the situation in the country, the report says.
