Пытки и похищения на Северном Кавказе обсуждались на встрече американских и российских правозащитников

Posted by Info on 09/07/2009

На сегодняшней встрече в Москве американских и российских правозащитников, приуроченной к визиту Барака Обамы в Москву, больше всего времени заняла тема пыток и похищений людей на Северном Кавказе.

“Мне кажется, что основной посыл такой: права человека не имеют границ. Мы не говорим о равенстве уровня нарушений прав человека в России и США, просто мы вместе обсуждаем все проблемы нарушений прав человека и в США, и в России.” – считает Ганнушкина.

Moscow police detain 10 Khodorkovsky supporters

Posted by Info on 09/07/2009

MOSCOW, July 8 (RIA Novosti) – The police have arrested 10 protesters attempting to hold pickets in support of jailed ex-Yukos founder Mikhail Khodorkovsky in central Moscow, a local police spokesman said on Wednesday.

July 6, 2009  Transcript of President Obama’s interview with Novaya Gazeta

Have you been following the new trial of Khodorkovskiy and Lebedev?

“I do not know the intimate details of these new proceedings, though my advisors most certainly do. However, without knowing the details, it does seem odd to me that these new charges, which appear to be a repackaging of the old charges, should be surfacing now, years after these two individuals (Mikhail Khodorkovskiy and Platon Lebedev) have been in prison and as they become eligible for parole. Nonetheless, I think it is improper for outsiders to interfere in the legal processes of Russia.”

“As I said in my inaugural address: “To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history.”

“I do have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things:  the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn’t steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose.  These are not just American ideas; they are human rights.”
