Head of the Federation Council on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev considers that the report on the observance of human rights in the world for 2014 distributed by the U.S. Department of state, highly politicized and biased.
The Senator also said that the U.S. Department of state " in principle, nobody authorized the preparation of such reports ".
yesterday, the U.S. state Department released a report which emphasizes that the Russian Federation restricts freedom of speech and freedom of 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 is highly politicized, and the assessments contained therein, in reality, relate not to the merits of the situation with human rights in this or another country, and due to the U.S. position towards this country," said Kosachev correspondents on the last working day of the week.
The head of the Department said that the report " extremely cruel, extremely detailed with regard to Russia ", and at the same time in Russia was not an election, not changed the power." we have the same Manager, we have the same Parliament, we have the same government, " said the Senator.
According to Kosachev, such reports cannot be considered seriously." It's no more than a tool of U.S. foreign policy strategy, a tool of pressure on the countries that the US for one reason or another are not satisfied, " said he.
