The Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada`s adoption of a Decree «On an approval of a Statement on Ukraine`s deviation from obligations determined by Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and European social charter (revised)» is a direct and supremely cynical violation of all existed norms and principles of an international right that Ukraine was obliged to follow with due time.

Guided by the private interests and political expediency, the official Kiev allows itself to exclude «unfavorable» documents from the list which are binding probably hoping that it would get away.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on an international community and specialized international-legal institutions to give an immediate legal estimate to these actions.

We would like to remind the Ukrainian leaders that all encroachments and violent manipulations with international right are the first steps towards self-isolation, gaining the status of «outcast» and they ruin the country.
