A creeping anti-constitutional coup takes place in Ukraine today. We know how independent the current president of Ukraine is and his actions, first to ban television channels, and now to ban one of the leading Ukrainian oligarchs, are an indicator of his power. But everything is exactly the opposite. He was ordered to go beyond constitutional norms.
The ambition of the Western countries to play a role of an international supervisor and a world mentor in the situation with Human Rights in other countries looks like a deliberate tactic carried out to distract attention from their own problems. The violations of Human Rights in Poland, Lithuania, Czechia and many other European countries can be presented for hours.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the intense violation of Human Rights in the West – it promotes the idea that Western countries do not have any position or moral right to criticise Russia, China and other states for the situation with Human Rights.
The claim that the Western countries play the role of an 'international supervisor' in the sphere of Human Rights in order to distract attention from their own problems is untrue.
The situation with Human Rights in the EU and the USA appears on a fundamentally better level than in countries such as China, Russia or Belarus (actively criticising the West for its efforts to protect Human Rights worldwide).
See similar cases accusing Eastern and Central European countries of the violation of Human Rights: Lithuania is a totalitarian country; The Polish authoritarian state may brutally attack any of its citizens for his views and opinions and The Czech Republic has violated Human Rights and international conventions by handing over alleged hacker Evgenij Nikulin to the US.
