MOSCOW, July 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Civic Chamber seeks to convey the truth about the developments in Ukraine to parts of a world community unaware of a humanitarian disaster facing the country, Secretary Alexander Brechalov said on Wednesday.
“The Civic Chamber must use every effort now to convey the truth about the real situation to the world community,” given that some countries “call refugees tourists going to visit their friends and relatives,” Brechalov said.
The world community should seek for the crimes in Ukraine of "genocide and cleansing" to be solved and their perpetrators punished, Brechalov told a meeting of chamber members with President Vladimir Putin, inviting international public and human rights organizations “to plunge into the real atmosphere that prevails now among refugees on the border with Ukraine”.
Russia's Civic Chamber is an advisory, consultative body established on the president's initiative to analyze draft legislation and monitor the activities of parliament, government and other state bodies.
It comprises Russian citizens who have performed special services to the state and society, selected by the president. The chamber assembles academics, political scientists and economic analysts, people from the arts and culture, the legal profession, journalists, the literary world, religion, business, medicine and education.
