Contribution of Human Rights Council to settle Ukrainian crisis requires abandoning ignorance of atrocities committed against Donbass – SANA

Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations and international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Husam El-Din, stressed that the contribution of the Human Rights Council to settling the Ukrainian crisis requires abandoning ignorance of the systematic violations of human rights and atrocities committed against the residents of Donbass, and acknowledging that imposing illegal coercive measures on Russia and dispatching lethal weapons to Ukraine stresses Western countries’ endeavors to escalate the crisis.

In a speech before the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Ambassador Ala said that convening a special session of the Council on Ukraine, less than two months after a similar discussion session, and the recycling of the content of the resolution previously adopted, comes in the context of a systematic Western move to defame Russia and serve agendas that seek to escalate the situation in Ukraine and obstruct reaching a peaceful solution, which contradicts the role of the Council in promoting and protecting human rights based on universal and objective principles, away from politicization and double standards.

The ambassador stressed that the council session and the draft resolution before it, which ignores the facts and seek to selectively blame Russia, express an approach that has proven its failure in addressing human rights issues in a fair and non-discriminatory manner, calling on council members to reject this approach.

  1. Members of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalion Azov (under criminal investigation in Russia) shot captured Russian soldiers in their knees and officers in their heads for no apparent reasons, former French serviceman Adrien Bocquet, who returned from a humanitarian mission in Ukraine, said.

    "Those people (Russian captives), who admitted being officers, were shot in the head. That is what is happening in Bucha and throughout Ukraine. The Azov battalion can say whatever it wants, but I have been there and I have seen what is going on there," Bocquet told French broadcaster Sud Radio.

    The former French serviceman also said he has footage showing Russian military being shot in knees by Ukrainian militants.

    "I have seen Russian captives being bound and badly beaten up.

    .. They were brought in threes or fours in minibuses. Each military leaving a bus took a bullet in a knee from a Kalashnikov rifle. I have several videos confirming this, otherwise I would not let myself state this," Bocquet added.

    He also said that fighters of the Azov battalion had refused to answer questions, leaving the reasons of their brutality unclear.
