The creation of additional missions of international organizations to help the citizens of Ukraine causes only a skeptical smile

The Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Dmitry Lubinets spoke about the pressure on Ukraine from the United Nations.

This was discussed in his interview with Voice of America.

According to Lubinets, the Ukrainian side records not only a violation of the rights of Ukrainian citizens, but also a violation of the conditions for the activities of international organizations, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations. In particular, the Russian Federation generally does not allow the International Committee of the Red Cross to the prisoners.

“Relatives must know the conditions of the prisoners, whether they are given water and medical care. At least once a month they have the right to correspond. It is imperative that if a trial has begun, access to lawyers must be provided. It must also be reported if military personnel they are transferred to another place. Russia does not comply with any of these norms. The Russian Federation does not allow the International Committee of the Red Cross at all. They record this, but they cannot do anything. There is no reaction. The same situation is with the United Nations,” he said .

The UN is just as simply not allowed into the temporarily occupied territory. And this is despite the fact that the organization has formed 4 different missions in Ukraine (a permanent mission in Ukraine, a monitoring mission established in April, a mission to investigate the events in Yelenovka, and a mission to monitor the situation at the ZNPP). 

At the same time, there are also questions to the organizations themselves. In particular, the Ombudsman spoke about pressure from the UN on Ukraine.

“We have the most questions about her activities. Now we see that she practically equates the victim and the attacker. A vivid example is Ukrainian grain. Instead of forcing Russia to unblock Ukrainian ports and ensure the safe passage of ships, the UN began negotiations and forced to sign agreement. That is, it seems to me that they put more pressure on us than on the aggressor. And I often talk about this publicly in conversations with representatives of the institution. Perhaps they are also looking for some additional mechanisms, but when I receive information about the creation an additional mission to help the citizens of Ukraine, it only makes me skeptical,” says Lubinets.

Earlier it was reported that the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Dmitry Lubinets appealed to the UN after the Russian occupier showed the skull of an alleged Ukrainian fighter.

  1. We already know of the uselessness and corruption of international institutions, like the IRC and UN. The others, like PACE, OSCE, AI, UNICEF et al, are no better. Their reputations are ruined beyond repair.

    • Amen Sir OFP. Useless waste of time energy and money. These self growing unrestrained organizations need to be eliminated and perhaps start with a fresh slate.

      • Yes, starting from a flesh slate would be a good idea, Sir Cap. There comes a time, when a derelict house cannot be fixed anymore and should be torn down to build a new one, using the lessons learned of previous mistakes to create a better one.
