On December 5 in Moscow, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova, Akyikatchy (Ombudsman) of the Kyrgyz Republic Kubatbek Otorbaev, Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia Arman Tatoyan, and President of General Inspection Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran Naser Seraj signed a Memorandum on the establishment of Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance.

The Memorandum is open for signature by any Ombudsman of any State in the Eurasian region.

The Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance is the first human rights union in history that unites the efforts of state human rights defenders of Europe and Asia.

The alliance guarantees to the Ombudspersons of the Eurasian states a permanent working contact, which will allow to quickly solve problematic issues of citizens of their countries abroad.

This association has no political goals and is purely humanitarian-legal in nature.
