Human rights in Russia

  John Attard-Montalto (PSE).(MT) Thank you Mr President. It is an undeniable fact that organisations known as NGOs and MPOs have a vital role in our civil society, both in large countries such as Russia, as well as in small countries such as where I come from. In Russia, the number of the many organisations which exist is around seventy thousand. Less than three weeks ago the parliament known as the State Duma passed some amendments, through the first reading, which had an impact on these organisations. One must appreciate the thought both within Russia as well as outside Russia about these amendments which can have an impact on human rights. However, one must mention that in certain countries there was a small number of these organisations which were abused for illicit and illegal aims. On the other hand, the amendments proposed by Russia have a negative impact on those organisations known as ‘buona fide’. On a positive note, the Council of Europe was asked for guidance and even the President of this country, Putin, made some proposals to the new chairman. To conclude, I would like to say that the solution is not to place these organisations in the same category, but to have the necessary legal tools within the parameters of the European Convention so that those which are not genuine will be identified. Thank you.
