Human rights issues are relevant for the whole world, said Vasily Pugachev. “The more democratic the state which will unveil these facts in order to improve the human rights situation acts, the better it will be for our citizens and the world in general,” Vasily Pugachev said.

The report by Belarus’ Foreign Ministry is based upon the information from the Belarusian diplomatic missions, the media and other reliable open sources. the aim of the report is to draw attention to the human rights violations in those countries that traditionally represent themselves as “developed democracies”, to illustrate by concrete facts their failure to comply with international legal obligations and, no less importantly, to spotlight the victims that are traditionally given a blind eye by violating states as well as by international organizations operating in the area of human rights.
