FAKE NEWS: Office Of UN High Commissioner For Human Rights Manipulates Facts Over Civilian Causlaites In Raqqah

Donate

On September 8, the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) of manipulating facts in the recent OHCHR press release about civilian casualties in the Syrian city of Raqqah.

Comment by the Information and Press Department on a press release by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (LINK):

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reviewed the press release put out by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) concerning the situation in Raqqa.

In this document, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein calls on the participants in the armed conflict to take maximum care of civilians, condemns the terrorists’ practice of using civilians as a human shield, and cites the sad statistics of casualties among the population.

However, there are details that attract attention. Below the information on the air strikes of the US-led coalition, the press release contains statistics on the Russian Aerospace Forces’ operation in Syria, unrelated to the coalition’s activities, followed by a report on civilian casualties in Raqqa. This gives the impression that the Russian Aerospace Forces were involved in the deaths of civilians there. The cynicism of this juggling with facts has exceeded all of the OHCHR’s previous politically biased moves.

We hope that the Office, which claims to be an objective and impartial unit of the UN Secretariat, will henceforth avoid manipulating facts and take a more responsible approach to producing such documents.

    “We hope that the Office, which claims to be an objective and impartial unit of the UN Secretariat, will henceforth avoid manipulating facts and take a more responsible approach to producing such documents”. are they that naive as to believe it will ever be objective and impartial.

      No, they don’t. That tragic farse (having a Saudi wahabi butcher as the head of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights is beyond my understanding. But :)
      Many say that Russians are way too diplomatic in their diplomatic practice, but I think that if you’re diplomat than you should be that – diplomat. If our “partners” don’t fallow rules it doesn’t mean that we should lower ourselfs to their level.
      Why do you think that there’s increasing support for Russia all over the world? That’s because Russia shows another way – different than zio nazi suisidal actions. Slowly but surely people start to realise that zio banksters way is not the only one possible.
      Methodology is the highest priority in ruling/managing – takes much longer than war (6th priority) but it’s much more lasting.

    • They’ll stop when the US stops vetting their briefs.

    OHCHR is a disgrace, and a corrupt one. Just been flicking through their pages and the reports are completely skewed against the Syrian government (member of UN) and know false flag events are cited as real events. UN has become a totally corrupt organisation working for the zio-empire.
