MOSCOW, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Within the framework of the 27th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Russian human rights activists made public the facts of gross human rights violation in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
The ministry said after the conference “The Crisis in Ukraine: Human Rights Dimension” that was held in the Palace of Nations in Geneva that Western media have been silent about these facts.
“The special emphasis was placed on the civilians’ deaths during Kiev’s punitive operation against the population of the country’s south-east,” the ministry said.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, “the growing spread of the radical, primarily ultranationalist, neo-Nazi ideology in Ukraine has been noted.” “The human rights activists called on the international community to pool efforts and help Ukraine to overcome this prolonged crisis,” the report says.
Reports at the session were delivered by the well-known experts: first deputy head of the Russian Peace Foundation, writer Anatoly Salutsky, member of the Russian Public Chamber, executive director of the Civil Watch NGO for Protection of Electoral Rights Georgy Fyodorov, and director of Historical Memory Foundation Alexander Dyukov.
The UNHRC session opened on September 8 and will last until September 26.
