On 15 May, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova met with Ambassador of Switzerland to Russia Pierre Helg, and Minister and Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of Switzerland, Patric Franzen.
In the course of the meeting the participants discussed international aspects of human rights protection and some matters of consolidation of cooperation in the field of human rights.
