Moskalkova to seek tough assessment of Kosovo incident from international organizations
MOSCOW, June 6 (RAPSI) – Russian ombudsman Tatiana Moskalkova will request that the Council of Europe and the United Nations organization severely assess clashes with the police in Kosovo resulting in injuries for the UN mission appointee Mikhail Krasnoshchekov, the rights commissioner’s press service has told RAPSI.
On Thursday, Moskalkova accompanied by the Serbian ombudsman Zoran Pasalic visited Krasnoshchekov in a hospital. His injuries are qualified as severe; they include an eye trauma, two fractures and headaches, she said.
The Russian ombudsman believes that the incident must receive a strict appraisal from the international organizations. This is a gross violation of human rights and legal norms, Moskalkova stressed. Attackers were aware that the victim is a UN employee; this fact increases the situation’s cynicism, she added.
On May 28, Krasnoshchekov along with three police officers, one journalist and one more UN employee received injuries during the military operation of the Kosovo police conducted under the guise of the fight against organized crime. The Russian man was hospitalized.
