Held in Geneva on 30-th session of the Council of the United Nations human rights Commissioner of the Russian delegation Tatiana Shlychkova criticized the Western States.
"Discrimination of national minorities, dozens of differences and defeats the rights of non-citizens in Latvia and Estonia contrary to their international obligations, she added, speaking at the session.- the decrease in the number of non-citizens occurs mostly through emigration and attrition of residents, and not naturalization ". Amid incomprehensible and unfounded phobias, she said, " in the Baltic States had begun the persecution of dissent, which are expressed in the pressure and even sanctions in relation to human rights defenders - EU Residents ". Thus, Lithuania was closed for 5 years of the entry two Latvian defenders, one of which - known Jewish anti-fascist Joseph Koren, reports news Agency. The Russian delegation believes that more attention ought to be given " a very worrying trend of backsliding in human rights in the countries of the So-called Mature democracies ". The United States the use of the principle of extraterritoriality for the fulfillment of international obligations and national law in the field of human rights " lead To gross violations ". Until now not closed, "the infamous prison at Guantanamo Bay, "the outraged" the kidnapping of American services Residents of other States to smuggle them into the United States to bypass existing international legal norms ", continues the practice of extrajudicial executions, indiscriminate use of unmanned aerial vehicles regarding terrorism suspects, and among them within foreign countries." Unfortunately, the UK is also not So long ago used drones for extrajudicial executions, " said Tatiana Shlychkova.
Despite the fact that most European countries " were deeply involved in the worldwide network on the transfer of sentenced persons with the use of its airspace and airports for illegal travel around the world in circumvention of the law ", the perpetrators not brought To justice, stated the diplomat. Under the pretext of fighting extremism and radicalization law enforcement requests unprecedented increase in its powers in this sphere and in practice unlimited access To information of individuals." we observed not only in the U.S. but also in France, Belgium, Canada, Norway, " said Shlychkova. Serious concern, she said, is causing pressure on the media and in the General attack on freedom of speech. Despite loud declarations of Western partners about its " sacredness ", is taking steps to close down "objectionable" by the media, the inclusion of correspondents in the "black lists" that limits access To various sources of information. This bad practice "is widely used not only traditional "leaders" in this area - the Baltic States and Ukraine, but are increasingly being implemented in the other countries, including Moldova, Poland, the United Kingdom ". Remember, the decision of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko about enabling correspondents to the black list has caused outrage in Russia and abroad.
