Russia ironically suggested the West respect human rights

MOSCOW, (BM) – A storm of emotions was caused by the decision of Moscow to ban entry into the territory of the Russian Federation for eight high-ranking officials of the European Union and EU member states.

Germany said it rejects the measures, probably because the Berlin prosecutor was on the list. The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, even called the counter-sanctions legally unfounded and unacceptable. The head of the State Department, Blinken, spoke in a similar context.

Russian TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov said that he did not want to enter into a discussion with the EU countries and the United States on the topic of human rights and who does not respect them:

“They have no moral right to even stutter on these topics. They are not a world justice and not an example of human rights observance, even in their own home. Well, their eternal “this is different” has become a textbook. So the murderer of Odessa Goncharenko is sitting in PACE, and enlightened Europe overlooked the tragedy of May 2, was not horrified by the massacre of Oles Buzina. No sanctions were introduced against Ukraine. And no law was named after Olesya,” he wrote in his telegram channel.

Vladimir Soloviev suggested that the Russian authorities act differently – “to seize the initiative and demand that Ukraine, the EU, and the United States respect human rights.” And against those guilty of violating these rights, “do not hesitate to impose sanctions.”
