Обращение Украинского центра Международного ПЕН-клуба по поводу массовых нарушений прав человека и безнаказанных нападений репрессивного аппарата власти в Украине на гражданских активистов, журналистов и писателей в Киеве

Мы призываем мировое сообщество серьезно отнестись к угрозам, которые идут сегодня от репрессивных властей в Украине и России. Безопасность в мире становится недостижимой, если диктаторы и их приспешники попирают ценности. Эффективным ответом на эти угрозы среди прочего есть дипломатическое и моральное давление на режимы президентов Путина и Януковича, поддержка адресных санкций против нарушителей прав человека в Украине, солидарность с гражданским обществом в нашем мирном протесте. | detail
