The HRC doesn't agree with Kadyrov's words about human rights activists - RIA Novosti, 8/24/2018


MOSCOW, 24 Aug — RIA Novosti. The vice-president of the Human Rights Council (HRC) Evgeny Bobrov hasn't agreed with opinion of the Governor of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov on human rights activists, having noted that the people who are engaged in human rights activity draw the attention of society to inadmissible things and demand the humane attitude towards each person. Earlier at a meeting with the leading and command structure of the republican Ministry of Internal Affairs after attack on police officers in Chechnya Kadyrov called general care a protection of teenagers from recruitment and also has criticized "so-called human rights activists" who sympathize with bandits, and has said that they don't have the place in Chechnya. Later the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has said that in media reports on criticism of human rights activists of his word could be taken by Kadyrov out of a context, and has noted that "it is necessary to differentiate after all human rights activists", many of which perform "necessary functions and are held in the deserved respect". "This his personal opinion … I am negative to the statement of the Governor of Chechnya, I consider that it is necessary to be more objective and not to present human rights activists in the form of such monsters who constantly prevent law-enforcement or judicial systems to investigate crimes. Human rights activists just pay attention to inadmissible things and demand the humane attitude towards each person what he was suspected of" — Bobrov has told RIA Novosti. In turn the member of HRC Kirill Kabanov hasn't excluded that Kadyrov's words could be taken out of a context or in general are distorted. "We faced and with quotes which could throw … began to discuss them at a meeting of HRC, and then it was the throw" — he has told RIA Novosti. Kabanov has noted that he didn't hear Kadyrov's words about human rights activists, but understands logic of his performance as a number of the people calling themselves human rights activists and also those who work on this subject for the western grants "often give, to put it mildly, a biased assessment".
