MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) - It is obvious that the political elite of the Western countries is completely out of touch with the real needs of their society today, Irina Velichko, the head of the Central Office of Multilateral Diplomacy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus, said as she addressed a special event on racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia in Europe with a focus on victimization and glorification of Nazi accomplices, BelTA has learned.
Irina Velichko announced the report of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus on “The most outrageous cases of human rights violations in certain countries 2022”. “It is obvious that the political elite of the Western countries is completely out of touch with the real needs of their society today. In the pursuit of all-powerful foreign policy, in an attempt to teach other states how to live, the political establishment of these countries has become unconcerned with their citizens,” she said.
The representative of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed: “Just a few examples of such policies in respect to ordinary people are systemic discrimination in society, almost daily dispersals of peaceful protests by force, violations of the rights of refugees and migrants, and banning the media from covering the events.”
The online event has been organized jointly by Belarus and Russia on the sidelines of the 50th session of the UN Human Rights Council.
