Human Rights Commissioner in Russia hails humanitarian passage route for 430 Ukrainian servicemen

Human Rights Commissioner in Russia hails humanitarian passage route for 430 Ukrainian servicemen and appeals again to Ukrainian authorities to open humanitarian passage to evacuate ill children.

Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova hails the creation of the humanitarian passage route for 430 Ukrainian servicemen and appeals again to the Ukrainian authorities to open secure passage routes for evacuation of ill children from Donetsk and Lugansk.

“In our turn, we may expect that the Ukrainian authorities will eventually respond to our multiple appeals and will do everything in their powers to create a real humanitarian passage route for evacuation of the ill children being under fire in Donetsk and Lugansk,” Ms Pamfilova said today commenting on the opening of the humanitarian passage route for 430 Ukrainian servicemen.

On 25 July, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova, Executive Director of Fair Aid Foundation Elizaveta Glinka, and Chairman of the Presidential Council for Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov published an appeal to open humanitarian passage routes for evacuation of the ill children from the armed conflict zone in Lugansk and Donetsk.

Ella Pamfilova has also expressed her hope that the information related to the rescue of 430 Ukrainian servicemen by Russia will be published by Ukrainian mass media. “It would be fair, if the official Ukrainian media informed Ukrainian audience of this fact. In view of the media wars evoking hatred between our nations, publication of this information could reduce the degree of this hatred,” the Commissioner believes.

This gives hope for a further objective examination of the journalist’s case. I congratulate Kirill, his relatives, friends and all those helping his release!
