MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Neo-Nazi marches in Ukraine pose a threat to the entire international community, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Wednesday, presenting the 3rd edition of the White Book on crimes in Ukraine.
He said that mass marches of neo-Nazis under fascist slogans were held in Ukraine on October 14.
“Why does this happens in Europe of the 21st century?" the diplomat wondered. "What is happening presents a major threat to the entire international community,” he added.
Ukrainian government forces used phosphorus and cluster bombs, Grad and Uragan multiple rocket launchers and Tochka-U ballistic missiles against the population in the south-east of the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in its White Book.
Along with heavy weapons and warplanes, Ukrainian authorities used such ammunition as incendiary, phosphorous and cluster bombs, howitzer artillery and 240-mm mortar systems, the report said.
Kiev’s actions in Ukraine’s south-east can be defined as war crimes, Konstantin Dolgov said, presenting the third edition of the White Book on crimes in Ukraine on Wednesday. “Certainly, all such facts can be taken as nothing but war crimes which were committed and are still being committed against civilians,” Dolgov added.
Russia urges international media and organizations to make non-politicized assessments of the causes of the Ukrainian crisis, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"We are convinced that distraction from reality and attempts to conceal it from the international community or to manipulate public opinion are a hypocritical and dead-locked path," the ministry said.
The book also runs that Kiev and western countries try to put up obstacles to Russia’s efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine.
There's a humanitarian catastrophe in eastern Ukraine as a result of Kiev’s military operations. United Nations experts said up to 60% of homes were destroyed in cities of the region, the ministry said.
In this situation it is cynical that Kiev and some Western capitals put various obstacles to Russian practical efforts to send humanitarian convoys to deliver aid for the population, the ministry added.
An effective and unbiased probe into the Boeing crash near war-torn eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk is soft-pedalled in violation of the UN Security Council resolution, Russian Foreign Ministry said in the third edition of the White Book of rights violations and supremacy of law principle in Ukraine covering the period from July to November 2014 posted on the ministry’s website on Wednesday.
“Yet, an effective and unbiased investigation of this tragedy is not conducted obviously in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2166 adopted on July 21, 2014 and International Civil Aviation Organization rules is soft-pedalled by those who are not interested in finding the truth,” the document said.
