“We have carefully studied the latest, fourth, report published by
the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the basis of
information presented by the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in
Ukraine,” Lukashevich said in a commentary, which was published on the
Russian Foreign Ministry’s website.
“Our main conclusion is that this report is biased and even hypocritical,” the diplomat said.
“What is the price of its key message that the government of Ukraine
is allowed to legitimately use force to restore the rule of law and
order in the east of the country? It effectively serves to justify
Ukraine’s ongoing punitive operation,” he said.
