Russian Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova decided to turn to the UN due to the fact that the Ukrainian CEC closed voting stations in Russia. The decision of Ukraine, according to Moskalkova, restricts the rights of “millions of Ukrainians”, living in Russia.
24 channel reported that the Central election Commission of Ukraine has closed five polling stations on elections of the President of Ukraine on the territory of Russia. They moved to the Embassy of Ukraine in Georgia, Kazakhstan and Finland, where you will be able to vote Ukrainians.
A late reaction to the decision of Ukraine to Russia, distinguished Commissioner for human rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova. So, on its website, it published a letter addressed to the UN high Commissioner for human rights Michelle Bachelet.
In her opinion, this decision violates the rights of “millions of Ukrainian citizens who work in Russia,” and “has obvious political overtones.”
I ask you, as well as international observers to pay attention to the fact that most of those Ukrainians who vote on the territory of Russia, are the voters who strengthen good-neighborly relations between Ukraine and Russia, promote mutual understanding between the brotherly peoples of the two countries
– wrote Moskalkova.
