MOSCOW, September 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian side plans to present a report, containing the analysis of the human rights situation in Ukraine, during the visit of speaker of the State Duma Sergey Naryshkin to Geneva, a Duma member said on Tuesday.
“Our position will be presented during the visit of the Duma chairman to Geneva where a detailed discussion on the human rights violations (in Ukraine) will be held,” the head of Duma’s Constitutional Legislation and State Building Committee Vladimir Pligin told a news conference in Moscow.
According to the UN, some 3,500 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands have fled Ukraine’s war-torn south-east as a result of clashes between Ukrainian troops and local militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.
Naryshkin will lead Russia’s delegation on a visit to Geneva on October 1-2 when the inter-parliamentary group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will hold a meeting.
Pligin said this discussion would determine the way Russia will further react to the exposed violations.
