The UN took Russia to countries that “reprehensible”.
The UN on 12 September published the list of 38 countries that are “deserving of censure” due to the violation of human rights.
About it reports a press-service of the organization.
The report of the UN Secretary General, antónio Guterres, said about the countries that are subjected to repression or intimidating people who cooperate with the UN, and human rights defenders.
“Cases of reprisals and intimidation, described in detail in this report and its two annexes, represent the tip of the iceberg,” said the UN.
In the countries mentioned in the report, the authorities prevent the institutions to cooperate with the UN, including by restricting their funding, especially from foreign donors. The report noted that governments often accuse human rights defenders of terrorism, cooperation with foreign organisations or causing damage to the reputation of the state or national security.
In the list of countries in which there have been new cases of human rights violations, includes Bahrain, Cameroon, China, Colombia, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hungary, India, Israel, Kyrgyzstan, Maldives, Mali, Morocco, Myanmar, Philippines, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, South Sudan, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Venezuela.
