500,000 Russians in Latvia and Estonia Deprived Of Political, Social Rights

Posted by Info on 02/02/2011

Some 500,000 Russians living in Latvia and Estonia have been deprived of political and social rights as they have no citizenship, a statement by Russia’s Foreign Ministry says.

According to the paper the situation is exacerbated by a lack of involvement from the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights.
Moscow expressed its bewilderment with the Agency’s report which focuses on the forthcoming Estonian elections saying nothing about Russian-speaking residents who have no right to vote.
