MOSCOW, September 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Human rights commissioner of the Council of Europe (CE) Nils Muiznieks will pay a visit to Kiev, Moscow and Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, on September 8-12, an informed source told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
"In Kiev and Moscow, Muiznieks is due to discuss Ukraine's crisis, the problems of internally displaced persons and humanitarian issues," the source said. "The commissioner will be staying in Crimea for three days to gain a better understading of the situation there."
Last week, CE Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland visited Moscow. During their meeting, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out that the CE should get involved into the investigation of crimes in Ukraine.
"We will be ready to back up other efforts of the Council of Europe, in particular related to security of journalists and rights of ethnic minorities in Ukraine," the minister said.
