Memorandum of Eurasian Ombudspersons’ Alliance establishment will be signed in Kyrgyzstan

On 6 September, in the framework of the international forum "The Commissioner’s Role in the Improvement of Legal Acts in the Field of Human Rights: Expectations and Prospects", a Memorandum on the establishment of the Eurasian Alliance of Ombudspersons will be held in the city of Bishkek. The document will be signed by High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova and her colleagues from the Kyrgyz Republic, Armenia and other republics.

As the Memorandum states, "the main tasks of the Eurasian Alliance of Ombudspersons are cooperation in the field of human rights protection, extension of knowledge about human rights protection means, international cooperation of the Eurasian Alliance of Ombudspersons with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights and other international institutions for the purpose of promoting and ensuring human rights".

The need to create effective mechanisms for the human rights and freedoms protection in the Eurasian space is reasoned by the processes of economic and political integration of our countries, in turn, caused by the time. "Eurasian integration is a chance for the entire post-Soviet space to become an independent center of global development, and not periphery for Europe or Asia," Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club. The establishment of such a center is impossible without the closest cooperation in the field of the rights and freedoms protection of our citizens. To achieve this goal, it is planned to create a unique institution — a new dimension in the protection of human rights and freedoms on the largest continent of the world — the Eurasian Alliance of Ombudspersons.

The possibility to communicate with family and friends is, perhaps, all that connects the convict with the outside world. Social ties are strands of steel, they can unwind for thousands of kilometers, but they never break.
