Russian Foreign Ministry Human Rights, Democracy, and Rule of Law Commissioner Konstantin Dolgov is surprised to see that Western human rights activists are not reacting to the Ukrainian authorities' and radicals' actions toward journalists.
"Detentions of undesirable journalists by Ukrainian authorities and radicals violate freedom of speech and press. Where is reaction from Western human rights advocates? Double standards still in the way?" Dolgov said on Twitter.
"Fundamental human rights sacrificed for informational war," he added.
Dolgov also insisted on providing access to activist Pavlo Hubarev, the so-called 'people's governor' of the Donetsk region.
"OSCE and Red Cross should ensure humanitarian access to Hubarev. His health status causes concerns. Looks like he's been tortured," Dolgov said.
