MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. Western media systematically ignore reports on the scale of human rights violations in Ukraine, which is a manifestation of double standards, a senior Russian diplomat said Monday.
"As regards the treatment of humanitarian aspects, 20 plus [humanitarian] convoys came from Russia, and there’ll be others," the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, said on the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
"Targeted assistance will be rendered to veterans residing in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," Dolgov said.
"There is still no serious humanitarian assistance to residents of south-east Ukraine on the part of the West and many international organizations," he said, however noting the role of the Red Cross.
"Russia bears the key burden," Dolgov said. "No one in the West writes about this ‘burden’ in the good sense of the word for political reasons."
Clashes between Ukrainian troops and local militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation, conducted since mid-April 2014, to regain control over parts of the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk People's republics, have left thousands dead and forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee Ukraine’s embattled east.
