OHCHR is becoming a conductor of Western interests, Gatilov said


Gennady Gatilov. File photoGENEVA, June 16The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is becoming a conductor of the interests of the West, moving away from the principles of impartiality in its work, said Gennady Gatilov, Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Geneva Office, during the 50th session of the UN Human Rights Council, within which the situation in Mariupol is discussed. On Thursday, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet presented a report in which she called the humanitarian situation in the city catastrophic. She stated that “the Russian Federation, as the occupying power in Mariupol, must comply with all obligations under applicable international law.” Bachelet also called for UN Human Rights representatives to be granted unhindered access to Mariupol and “all other affected areas.”The UN sent investigators to Ukraine to collect data on sexual violence Addressing Bachelet, Gatilov said that the Russian side had repeatedly reported facts and evidence of violations of international humanitarian law by Ukrainian armed forces and national battalions, including the forcible retention of the Azov regiment by militants for 2 , 5 months of local residents in the mined workshops of the Azovstal plant. “But you, dear High Commissioner, and you, dear delegates of Western countries, bashfully prefer to remain silent about all this. We are forced to state that the Administration, thus, becomes a conductor of the geopolitical interests of the collective West, demonstrating a departure from the principles of impartiality and objectivity in their activities,” Gatilov said, commenting on the report of the UN High Commissioner. He stressed that all people are equal in their rights and the rights and lives of the residents of the DPR and LPR also matter. However, in June of the same year, the Ukrainian security forces captured Mariupol, carrying out a punitive operation. On May 20, 2022, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced the complete liberation of the city – the underground facilities of the Azovstal plant, where the militants of the Azov regiment were hiding (against whom criminal cases were initiated in the Russian Federation) and the Ukrainian military, came under the control of the Russian Armed Forces. In total, according to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, since May 16, more than 2.4 thousand Nazis from the Azov regiment and the Ukrainian military have surrendered, who were blocked on the territory of the plant for about a month. “All this is terrible and scary”: the brutal shelling of Donetsk
