The State Duma discussed the observance of human rights in the United States

Russia intends to regularly raise questions about human rights violations in the United States, said the head of the international committee of the State Duma, Alexei Pushkov, opening parliamentary hearings on this topic on Monday, October 22.

This is not an exercise in anti-American propaganda, but we want to emphasize that usurpation of this topic is unacceptable.

He noted that recently the international community has spread the opinion that it is the United States that has the right to criticize other countries on this issue, since they themselves have no such problems. “This is not the case,” the Russian parliamentarian said.

Here I would like to understand who the judges are, how much they have the right to judge some things, and how much they themselves meet the criteria that they put forward? Someone, of course, may ask if Russia has the right to raise these questions, because Russia is not a perfect country, and we know this very well from the point of view of observing human rights. In my opinion, if we raise these questions not only in relation to ourselves, but also in the world, this will allow us to gradually move towards establishing a certain political culture of protecting human rights. "

According to Interfax, the politician admitted that there are also human rights problems in Russia, but, unlike in the United States, “we do not have secret prisons, including abroad, and no kidnappings.”

According to Pushkov, the purpose of the parliamentary hearings is to “correctly define the criterion for the observance of human rights”.

According to Dolgov, the initiative to hold such a hearing was very timely. The idea of ​​parliamentarians was to draw attention to the serious, including systemic, problems of the United States. These were the first hearings devoted specifically to the problems of the United States, but this year a similar meeting has already been held on the observance of human rights in the European Union. According to Dolgov, the hearing cannot be called a response to the adoption in the US of the law on the Magnitsky list.

According to Dolgov, there are a lot of problems in the field of human rights observance in the USA. One of them is racial discrimination. Its manifestations are not only not disappeared, but are growing. In addition, there is xenophobia in America - there is a clear discrimination against members of certain ethnic groups. Serious problems are connected with the penitentiary system: prisons are overcrowded, and the conditions of their detention are not always humane. There are difficulties associated with the electoral system. In addition, when dispersing peaceful protests, US police often use disproportionate force.

What do you want, gentlemen "democrats", for too long you have taught us "democracy". All tired, it was our turn.

    The United States is demanding the abolition of the death penalty from other countries, although it is chosen. Regarding human rights in the United States, yes it is. A person has the right to one phone call and a lawyer, everything he says can be used against him in court, in a word, has the right to be silent laughing And on children's rights in the United States, Louisiana and Arkansas are allowed to execute teenagers from the age of 15. Alabama State - since 14 years old. The state of Mississippi - since 13 years old. In the history of the United States, there have been cases when even the death sentences imposed on 12-year-old children were carried out ............. Democracies are submissive to all ages hi

      Alexander Romanov - Greetings, Alexander, well, it's not even interesting to talk about Yu ES heY, one prison in Guantanamo is worth a lot, they have been keeping people for years without any legal grounds, according to the principle - "boy, you are a terrorist ..." - and that's it. planted without time limit and without the right to legal assistance. And plus to this there is also a whole network of such semi-underground, transit prisons around the world ...
      The fact that our Duma "seriously" took care of this issue, I think it is correct, the same move was with the publication of a regular report on the situation with "rights" in THEIR countries - what is the request, such is the answer - we read their reports about us, so let them read our reports about them ... tongue

        Hi Igor, I often criticize our police, but when I read what the local policemen do in the USA, I don’t even know how to comment what In the suburbs of St. Louis, Victoria Sikrit, police several times discharged a stun gun into a 12-year-old girl.

        Police arrested the girl’s mother Charlene Bratton for failure to pay fines for traffic violations. “He said hands behind his back. I asked why, ”says Charlene Bratton. - "Then you know, he threw me to the ground." All this happened in front of her 12-year-old daughter, Dejemon Baker, who could not stand it and burst into tears.

        “I just cried. I think he was angry or something else because I was crying. Therefore, he immediately pulled it out and discharged the stun gun into me, ”says Baker, showing reporters the wounds from the stun gun on his chest and stomach. “I fell to the floor, and could not control myself, I just continued to shake and fight.”

        A police spokesman said that the officer’s actions were justified, as the girl allegedly tried to prevent the arrest.

      As for human rights in the United States, yes it is.

      It is necessary to convey to the wide American public the following: "The diplomatic conference under the auspices of the United Nations adopted the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (hereinafter referred to as the Court). The Conference was attended by delegations of 160 states. 120 states voted for the adoption of the Statute, including Russia. Twenty-one states abstained, and seven voted against. The United States was most active in limiting the powers of the Court.
      The Court was established as a permanent body with jurisdiction over those responsible for the most serious crimes of concern to the international community. In this case, we are talking only about those crimes that are listed in the Statute. The International Criminal Court does not replace the criminal courts of States. Its jurisdiction is replenishing.
      The Court may exercise its functions in the territory of any state- a party to the Statute, but on the basis of a special agreement and on the territory of any other state. The Court is an independent international body. He has international legal personality. The relationship of the Court with the UN will be governed by its agreement with that organization. The place of stay is The Hague "
      Then democracy would triumph. True, you have to expand the staff ... especially for the United States ...

    + I agree with you, it is unlikely that it will be possible to go out to their media - they have long belonged to the US oligarchy and now most likely they will only laugh at this topic. but, I think, this issue should be continued to be raised, and in ten years it will no longer cause laughter !!

    oh, good news! We need to conduct such discussions at the international level. And not only on human rights, but also on war crimes at the state level. To raise questions about the responsibility of those responsible for armed conflicts and "democratic" revolutions. There are more than enough topics for discussion. There are also enough overseas comrades in expensive suits who, in all fairness, should be sent to the scaffold.

    According to the US Democrats and our henchmen, everything is bad with us.
    But with the second paragraph of the Bill in the United States, everything is in order. It is the right to store and carry weapons. Here, indeed, democratization has reached its climax: everyone who has been beaten in the Gears of War or Dark Sector can test their personal pistol on peers or teachers in their own college.

    Good deal! I wonder why our Foreign Ministry has been chewing snot for so many years and only blinked from the next civilian and European clicks on the nose. But there is a problem that reduces this activity, alas, almost to nothing. As many people know, the global information space is controlled not by us, but by THEY. Therefore, even the most egregious facts voiced on this side of the new IRON Curtain, on that side, simply no one will hear. If you climb into some of the most shabby English-language chat, you can sadly watch what the most cool Cold War stamps are issued about Russia by ordinary Americans, Europeans and not only them. Brains are thoroughly washed there. And in order to break into their information field with our information, I don’t know what titanic efforts should be made. Our entire defense budget is not enough. So get used, colleagues, that we are bad guys again.
