The current report from the state Department of the United States in some of the situation with human rights in Russia has been the most politicized that the United States wants to increase pressure on Russia in different ways, connecting and human rights subjects, While Russia itself perfectly aware of their problems and can solve them without pointers from the outside, says member of the presidential Council on human rights (HRC) Alexander Brod.
yesterday, the United States state Department released a report which finds That in Russia, freedom of speech and freedom of the media. In the report, for example, is indicated on the pressure " regarding correspondents covering the situation in Ukraine, the situation of sexual minorities, questions of natural factors, as well As critical local and Federal authorities ".
"This report I think the most politicized in comparison with the previous one," said Ford Last news . In his vision, in this case, the concept of human rights used by the United States not to assist the resolution of issues, And as an additional instrument of pressure.
"The US has expressed interest to increase pressure on the Russian Federation from different angles and through economic sanctions and political mechanisms. For this game and connected the subject of human rights, " - said the opposition leader.
This is indicated in the report of the topic is known and widely discussed in the Russian human rights community, he said." The topic of the privatization of the media was discussed in the Public chamber, probably six years ago. Anyway there are fresh independent sites on the Internet, working channel " Rain ". I dream That this process of the emergence of new independent media will continue. And on state television channels recent years began to appear more frequently Empowered the opposition, " explained Ford.
for this reason, the statement of the United States about the fact That freedom of speech in Russia is completely destroyed, do not correspond to the truth, he noted." Just read our opposition websites and even some of the authors in the Federal, For example, Newspapers - they are not shy to criticize everyone and everything, for them there are no restrictions for opponents, and there are no objects that would have been untouchable", he said.
With regard to the law on NGOs- " foreign agents ", it calls the criticism of the Russian social activists and human rights defenders, said the head of the Department. However, the law on NGOs - not a dogma, work for its improvement continues, he added.
"the United States is becoming less and less moral right to teach the world democracy
