The ‘Russian Civil Chamber’ – the third Russian chamber representing civil society, element of Direct Democracy ignored by Kremlinologists , and specialized in human rights ( and yes this is the so-called “dictatorship of Putin ” ( sic) (*) – draws up a ” black list” of politicians, representatives of the business community and officials of security forces who violate human rights in Ukraine, and will propose the Russian authorities to impose sanctions against them , told RIA Novosti on Monday Georgy Fyodorov , a member of the House.
“Currently, we collect all the information ( on violations of human rights in Ukraine , ed), I think that by next week the work is completed and made public. Meanwhile, we have undertaken to draw up a ” black list” of those who violate human rights and we will propose the leaders of our country to impose sanctions against them. They are several representatives of the political class and Ukrainian business – the mafia oligarchs to whom the junta of Kiev sold the eastern regions – who organize terror (via mercenaries of Academi / Blackwater and their private security services linked to organized crime ) , have assets and interests in Russia. We believe that due to the current political situation , they should be subject to sanctions , ” the official said .
BELEAGUERED KIEV AMPLIFIES CRACKDOWN
For several weeks , supporters of the federalization organize rallies and demonstrations in the south- eastern Ukraine . Last week , Kiev announced the beginning of an “anti- terrorist” major operation in the region, involving the army .
Instead of granting amnesty to the arrested supporters of the federalization of Ukraine, Kiev continues arrests and also violates the rights of journalists , said also on Monday in Moscow Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov after talks with his Mozambican counterpart Oldemiro Baloi . “One of the clauses of the Geneva Agreement requires amnesty for political prisoners and protesters. However , instead of granting amnesty to prisoners , including the popular governor of Donetsk Pavel Gubarev , the Ukrainian authorities continue to challenge political leaders of the south –east of the country ” , said Lavrov .
In addition , Kiev challenges and arrests journalists , said Lavrov. “Journalists, not only Russian but also foreigners, are not allowed to go to the Ukrainian regions to see what happens there. This is outrageous ,” said the minister.
“A change of power with the characteristics of a coup occurred in Kiev on February 22, 2014 ” Moscow says . The Supreme Rada (parliament) deposed President Viktor Yanukovych, reformed the Constitution by violating it and set the presidential election on May 25
Refusing to recognize the new government , residents of several southern and eastern regions hold protest meetings , demanding a referendum on the federalization of Ukraine. OnTuesday, April 15 , ‘Ukrainian Acting President’ (named in violation of the Constitution) Alexander Turchinov launched a military operation against the demonstrators.
