Germany: Merkel disregards Donbass human rights violations - Former Ukrainian PM Azarov

Alemania, Berlin
22 February, 2017 a las 20:35 GMT -00:00 · Publicado

Writer's union International Concord of Federal Republic of Germany organised a press conference in Berlin, Wednesday, to provide evidence of human rights violations by the Ukrainian government in the war-torn Donbass region.

Speaking via video link from Moscow on the third anniversary of the Maidan uprising, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said that Germany and its chancellor Angela Merkel do not "notice horrible violations of human rights in Ukraine."

"In her speeches, she (Merkel) demonstrates her adherence to the protection of human rights, but in reality she doesn't notice horrible violations of human rights in Ukraine," Azarov said, and added that "I remember very well when German government was worrying when Timoshenko was having back pains. More than hundreds of children in Donbass were killed, thousands were injured. I am asking why Merkel is not worrying about that?"

During the press conference, several Donbass residents spoke about their experiences.

One of them, Irina Sadykova from the village of Makiivka, accompanied by her daughter, recalled the incident which took her husband's life in October 2016. "On 27th of October 2016, so 3,5 months ago, we were coming home from school with my husband and daughter. The shelling started without any notice, any warning," she said and continued "my husband covered us both with his own body. We all fell to the ground. Thanks to my husband, the child survived."
