Human Rights? We ain't got no Human Rights! We don't need no Human Rights! I don't have to show you any stinkin Human Rights !


'...we are going to continue insisting that peace be sought....'

It didn't take long at all, other than the 48 hours of Russian denials of the Bucha War Crimes for Putin  to strike out again - this time the Kramatorsk Train Station Attack:

  "Train station attack: At least 50 people, including five children, were killed and almost 100 injured in a Russian missile strike on a train station used as an evacuation hub in the eastern city of Kramatorsk on Friday. Zelensky said “all the efforts of the world” will be directed to establish who was responsible for the attack and how it was coordinated. He also urged a "firm, global response to this war crime."

 And one of the very first things Russia typically did was to deny through Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov   they did not fire the missile, that it was not one theirs. 


It stands to reason that Putin  the liar has no regard for human rights, and just one of the best possible retaliations (at this point ) was to remove him and his gangsters from the United Nations Human Rights Council.

UN General Assembly Votes To Suspend Russia From The Human Rights Council 




 Well, you already know the rest of the story: Mexico as expected, abstained in the vote.

"President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced, on April 7, that Mexico will not pronounce itself before the United Nations (UN) in favor of expelling Russia after the invasion of Ukraine and said that they will continue to insist on seeking peace agreements.

“Today the UN is going to vote, because they are proposing the expulsion of Russia, what we have proposed is that we should not vote for the expulsion of Russia or be against it, we are going to abstain, and why the abstention? because how do we resolve Russia's conflict with Ukraine?” he said.

“What is the UN for?” How are we going to blow up an instrument that is essential to achieve peace agreements and avoid war? And that people do not continue to change, especially innocent people. Let's not seek a peaceful solution, we are going to continue insisting that peace be sought," insisted the Tabascan politician.

“That has to be investigated by the UN, which has organizations for that purpose, there are human rights organizations dependent on the UN, if what is left over in the UN are organizations of all kinds, but when it is required it does not do so,” he added.

"What did you do? Nothing, and it is easy to say: 'we are going to decree sanctions and we are going to send weapons', well yes. And the lives? Who puts the dead? Then we must repair the procedure and call the parties to negotiation, dialogue, to stop the war, not be polarized and accuse”, concluded the national president.

Despite what López Obrador said, with 93 votes in favor, 58 abstentions -including Mexico- and 24 against, the UN General Assembly adopted, on April 7, the resolution to suspend Russia's membership of the Council of Human Rights of the international organization.

Although the UN Human Rights Council is based in Geneva, its members are elected by the 193-nation General Assembly of the United Nations Organization, to serve three-year terms.

The approved resolution expresses “serious concern about the ongoing human rights and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, in particular about reports of violations and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law by the Russian Federation, including serious violations and systematic and human rights abuses”.



Meanwhile, Putin on a rampage just one day later....

"On 8 April, the Russian Ministry of Justice delisted Amnesty International’s Moscow Office from the register of the representative offices of the international organizations and foreign NGOs, effectively closing it down alongside with offices of Human Rights Watch, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Friedrich Ebert Foundation and other organizations. This decision has been taken “in connection with the discovered violations of the Russian legislation.”

Love this guy, mucho respeto !

 At least thank goodness, the NGOs didn't end up in a strict regime penal colony like Alexei Nalvany. But who knows, maybe Putin will reopen  the gulags in Siberia to house the displaced Ukrainians who they haven't targeted and murdered (see:'kill them all, for f**k sake' CNN video) Oh, you say they have been reopened already ? Learn something new everyday.


Over and out for now, take care.
