MOSCOW, March 11 /TASS/. The growing number of human rights violations in Turkey have gone unnoticed by the European Union and the better half of the world community, Konstantin Dolgov, the Russian Foreign Ministry ombudsman for human rights, democracy and the rule-of-law, told the RT channel.
He regretted that Ankara was pursuing a policy, which contradicted Turkey’s international commitments to protect human rights.
According to Dolgov, the Turkish authorities have been carrying out a military operation against the Kurds and violating international commitments (on the freedom of speech and media) for several months or years by now.
It is a good question why the international community is not reacting to these facts, including the mute reaction of the European Union, which is usually much tougher when it comes to other countries, the ombudsman said.
Dolgov criticized the European Union and the United States for using double standards in handling human rights violations.
