Dmitry Lubinets stressed that such reports by international organizations put an equal sign between the aggressor and the victim.
The conclusions of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine about our violation of the rights of Russian prisoners of war do not correspond to reality. In addition, they pose a threat by equating the victim with the aggressor. Ombudsman Dmitry Lubinets spoke about this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine on Wednesday, March 29.
The Ombudsman stressed that he was surprised by the UN report, since during meetings with the head of the Mission, Matilda Bogner, and the permanent coordinator of the UN system in Ukraine, Denise Brown, the issue of alleged “ill-treatment” of Russian prisoners of war was never raised.
“It can harm us because with such reports, international organizations equate the aggressor and the victim. We were attacked. However, Ukraine adheres to the Geneva Conventions and international law, we are open to any checks, which cannot be said about the Russians. The victim is not equal to the aggressor, this must be clearly understood,” Lubinets added.
Recall, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine presented a report in which it stated its concern about “arbitrary executions” of up to 25 Russian and 15 Ukrainian prisoners of war.
In addition, Dmitry Lubinets responded by saying that he wanted to hear undeniable facts about alleged “violations” by Ukraine.
