Every time when I hear word combination“human rights organization”, I get association-zealous for grants. They are people who start defending everyone in interests of the third side trying to get their own benefit from accusations of someone violating human rights.
It is really bad, because not only I have such opinion, and institutions of human rights organizations, not commercial, not state that are to gather data fairly, they spoilt their reputation as a majority of law institutions.
Tomorrow is a press-conference where representatives of a public organization Eastern Human Rights Group (EHRG) represent their “report” on human rights violations in the DPR and LPR. It is expected that primarily they will cover questions on human rights violations on prisoners of war. Firstly, this organization works with such problems, and secondly, Georgiy Tuka who was appointed at the position of regional military-civilly administration (RMCA) by the order of the president Poroshenko in July 2015. Further destiny of Georgiy Borisovich is not interesting, he stole as much as he could and he left the position. And EHRG is an interesting fact.
Not many facts have bee known about this organization, it was announced factual fighter with the corruption in the ATO zone.
The topic of corruption was and it is now very “tasty”, and everyone who wants interfered in it, but they buy flats for 500 thousand dollars.
The organization is not very known, so few people heard about it last year, however, now they are going to the first position actively. Who and for what needs this, will they managed to promote it, the time shows.
The report does not impress itself. Prisoners of war are offended as usually, they are made to work, benefit of their work is not invested in their budget, but it is shared between the Head of the LPR (I like especially, what is the difference to you where the profit is invested? You have to protect people, but not to count money).
The sum was indicated there, it is 34 million UAN. They have data how relatives are to pay 200 UAN per month in order prisoners of war would be allowed to work.
At this time, there is a list of “stages of punishment” for refuse to work: 1) 15 days and nights of cartser, 2) cancellation of dates with relatives and to take something from them, 3) tortures.
The Head of EHRG Pavel Lisovskiy points out in his report that Ukrainian authorities refuse of taking prisoners of war to their territory, motivating that they do not recognize the LPR. According to Lisovskiy, many of prisoners of war are to be treated in regard to the law of Savchenko .
I think that such reports will be considered for quotations by Ukrainian Mass Media, however, I “think” that separate International editions are ready to start. And they will have perfect articles…
