MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Russia insists on a thorough probe into violations of human rights in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry’s human rights ombudsman told a Bali Democracy forum on Monday.
“The right to life, freedom, freedom of expression is rudely violated in Ukraine,” ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and supremacy of law, Konstantin Dolgov, said.
“Unwanted and offering an alternative view of developments media are actively restricted, manifestations of extremist, ultra-nationalist and neo-Nazi moods, as well as aggressive xenophobia are fixed, while intimidations, including the use of force, against political opponents as well as cleansings and arrests among them continue and seem to have become routine,” he said.
“Added to this list is Kiev’s violation of norms of international humanitarian law during the so-called anti-terrorist operation unleashed against hundreds of thousands of residents of Ukraine’s southeast,” Dolgov said.
“Kiev was actively using heavy artillery, aviation, multiple launch rocket systems and even ballistic missiles and such a barbarous means as phosphorus bombs,” he said. “Donetsk and Luhansk were coming under massive airstrikes,” Dolgov added.
Dolgov also mentioned mass graves of civilians found outside Donetsk on September 23. He said looming large were signs of genocide - “annihilation of representatives of the national, regional Russian-speaking group just for the fact of their belonging to this group with an aim to reduce its number”.
