International conference "Problems of human rights protection in the Eurasian region: exchange of best practices of ombudspersons"

On December 5, at the initiative of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, the International Conference «Problems of human rights protection in the Eurasian region: exchange of the best practices of ombudspersons» was held. Ombudspersons from Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Iran, Ukraine, as well as representatives of the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation, State Duma and Federation Council of the Russian Federation, expert and human rights community.

In turn, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova told the participants about the specifics of the activities of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.

"We face many challenges and their successful system solution is seen in the deepening of integration processes, increasing the effectiveness of interaction between all elements of the human rights system," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

In addition, the interests of protecting human and civil rights in the Russian Federation require the presence of operational contacts with colleagues — ombudspersons of those states whose jurisdiction is important for the successful resolution of complaints coming to the High Commissioner.

"I want to note the fruitful development of the High Commissioner’s cooperation with the national human rights institutions of Armenia (Arman Tatoyan) and Kyrgyzstan (Kubatbek Otorbaev). Thanks to the collective efforts of the ombudspersons, it is possible to solve the problems of the citizens of Armenia and Kyrgyzstan who are on the territory of Russia and citizens of the Russian Federation within the territory of the Republic of Armenia and the Kyrgyz Republic," Tatiana Moskalkova added.

"For ombudspersons, as for doctors, the world should be borderless!" Tatiana Moskalkova noted.
