Gratitude of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation

Dear Ella Alexandrovna!

I thank you and the members of the Central Election Commission of Russia for awarding me the medal "For Assistance in Organizing the Elections".

As the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation at the time, you have established a glorious tradition of the cooperation between the Commission and the state human rights institution.

Today, through close interaction between the CEC of Russia and the federal ombudsperson, as well as the coordinated activity of the election commissions and the Commissioners’ offices at the regional level, effective measures are being taken to prevent violations of the electoral rights of citizens and ensure electoral law.

I highly appreciate the honor of being awarded this high departmental award and I am convinced that the partnership established between our institutions will continue to contribute to the protection of the constitutional right of our citizens to freedom of expression and the creation of an enabling environment for the development of civil society.
