"Ukraine Friday launched a major attack against pro-Russian forces in the eastern city of Sloviansk. "
Moscow, May 5 - The Russian foreign ministry Monday published a report on human rights violations in Ukraine, mainly targeting Kiev authorities and the West.

The 81-page report comprises numerous facts of human rights abuses and violations in Ukraine from the end of November, 2013, to the end of March, 2014, Xinhua reported.

The present list of the most flagrant violations of fundamental international norms of human rights and the rule of law committed, gives enough grounds to claim that such violations were widespread, the report said.

The report accused Kiev authorities of forceful seizure of power, anti-constitutional coup, destruction of legitimate power structures, xenophobia, blatant blackmail, repressions, physical abuse of political opponents.

It said the essential task of the report was to focus on facts to which the international community and key international human rights bodies, as well as relevant non-governmental organisations, have not shown proper and impartial attention.

Moscow also presented a timeline of events when US and European politicians interfered in the internal affairs of the country, displaying dozens of related pictures.

Noting that the alleged violations that have been committed so far remain unpunished, Russia expressed the hope that relevant international organisations would recognise the critical situation.

Otherwise, it would pose a serious threat to regional peace and security and lead to further escalation of international and inter-ethnic contradictions and conflicts, the report said.

Earlier Sunday, Russia urged the Organisation for Security and Cooperation of Europe and the Council of Europe to immediately evaluate the situation in Ukraine in an objective manner.

Ukraine Friday launched a major attack against pro-Russian forces in the eastern city of Sloviansk.

On the same day, at least 46 people were killed and over 170 injured in clashes between pro- and anti-government protestors in the Black Sea city of Odessa.
