Moscow, November 24, Interfax - The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that a report prepared by the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine is far from objectivity and fact-twisting.
Moscow accuses UN mission in ignoring takeovers of churches and threats against priests in eastern Ukraine

“Unfortunately, the authors of the document are still far from being objective in their description and assessments of the tragedy in East Ukraine. Facts relating to the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border are being twisted… As previously, information from dubious sources is being used,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary.

According to it, “once again serious problems of the Russian-language population of Ukraine are being ignored.”

It is also mentioned that the document contains ‘not one word’ about the reduction of the Russian component in education, the ban on a number of teacher guidebooks and numerous threats against priests and takeovers of the churches belonging to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate.
