Reports of abuse of detainees on Saturday, participants of various events in regions of the Russian Federation, including the unauthorized, yet, the Association «Civil control» will forward requests to the Ombudsman in the regions, where there were such detention, told RIA Novosti co-Chairman of the Association, member of the presidential Council on human rights (HRC) Alexander Brod.

«Association «Civil control» monitors today’s protests. The main objective is to see whether there were violations of the rights of the inhabitants of the cities, protesters whether violence against law enforcement officers», — said Brod.

He said that the monitoring of human rights defenders aimed at improving the culture of the public shares in the regions and improvement of measures of public control over such events.

«I can say that there are regions in which these shares are very small or have no apparent problems, but there are regions, where there was detention. In particular, I would like to cite the example of Krasnodar Krai, where the event was nasagasaan,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

According to him, in this region long before the actions were planned sports, cultural events, however, organizers brought people to the area, have been fined.

«We will submit requests by the Commissioner for human rights in those regions where there was a detention order to understand on what grounds detention has occurred, whether the violation of the rights of detainees have applied to them force. But while such reports that detainees ‘ rights were violated, that insult them or use force on them, no,» said Ford.

The organizers of the current outstanding shares, according to human rights activist, «unfortunately, stepping on the same rakes as in previous years, and in the early summer of this year.»

«That is their main task — to provoke unrest, to attract attention, then blame government and law enforcement agencies in violating the rights to freedom of speech and mass actions», — said the Agency interlocutor.

He stressed that the need to take an objective approach to the assessment of these stocks; human rights defenders, according to him, interested in the fact that the opposition could Express their point of view and to speak freely, but when negotiating such shares, and without violating public order, not creating obstacles for citizens and transport, without provoking clashes with law enforcers.

«Therefore, all acts of provocation must be assessed critically in order to see that the organizers of these acts want to use citizens, not in order to indicate problems to the authorities, but rather to provoke these riots. When people are used as extras as a bargaining chip, which is unacceptable», — said Brod.
