The rights of Russian journalists in Ukraine violated, but the OSCE has paid proper attention to this problem, said Commissioner of the foreign Ministry on human rights.

MOSCOW, 19 Nov. Moscow is not satisfied with the reaction of the OSCE representative on freedom of the media Dunja Mijatovic on the situation with the rights of Russian journalists in Ukraine, said the Commissioner of the Russian foreign Ministry on human rights Konstantin Dolgov.

“There is reason to be dissatisfied with how she and other institutions react to this situation,” Dolgov said at a press conference in MIA “Russia today”.

He noted that the rights of Russian journalists in Ukraine are being violated. In response to this, Dolgov said, “there should be no double standards and selectivity”. “While they are there,” he said.

Dolgov said that in some European countries, discrimination against Russian media has become systemic.
