Коментар від КЛГП:

Лист КЛГП було надіслано Президенту Дмитрію Медведєву 26 січня цього року. В ньому йшла мова про юридичну ліквідацію ФНКАУР, про судову справу проти ОУР, про нерозслідувані вбивства активістів (Володимир Побурінний, Анатолій Криль, Володимир Сенишин), про три нерозслідувані напади на активістів (Митрополит Адріан (Старіна), Наталя Ковальова, проф. Микола Кернесюк). У листі також було згадано про тиск московських правоохоронців на БУЛ, про закриття Українського освітнього центру у Москві та про переслідування парафій УПЦ КП у Ногінську, Моск. обл.

За всі 13 років існування КЛГП і десятки правозахисних листів, надісланих трьом президентам Росії, наведена вище відповідь є другою, отриманою із Кремля. Сподіваємося на добрі наслідки для української громади і продовжуватимемо інформувати громадськість про перебіг справ.

Лист КЛГП Президенту РФ Дмитрію Медведєву від 26 січня 2011 р.

Комісія Людських та Громадянських Прав – Commission on Human and Civil Rights

 

The Hon. Dmitry Medvedev

President

Russian Federation

The Kremlin, Moscow

        January 26, 2010

Honourable President Medvedev,

We are writing to you on behalf of the Commission on Human and Civil Rights of the Ukrainian World Congress. We wish to express our great concern about the Ukrainian Minority in the Russian Federation and to ask for your assistance in ameliorating the many problems which it faces.

We had written to you about this matter in June, 2010, however, we did not receive a reply  to date.  The matters of concern at that time included the efforts of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation (RF) to use the Russian justice system to close down the Federal National-Cultural Autonomy Ukrainians of Russia (FNCAUR).  Unfortunately, on October 19, 2009, the RF Ministry of Justice suspended the activities of the FNCAUR until January 12, 2010, and on 24 November, 2010 FNCAUR was liquidated by decision of RF Supreme Court. In the meantime, it has also come to our attention that Russian authorities have begun efforts to close down the remaining federal organization of Ukrainians in Russia namely the Association of Ukrainians of Russia (AUR) .  It is incomprehensible to us  why Russian authorities are pursuing this course of action, directed against the Ukrainian minority in the RF. Both the FNCAUR and the Association of Ukrainians of Russia are organisations that have been in existence since 1998 and 1995 respectively and are well regarded by the Ukrainian community in Russia as well as by the world Ukrainian community.  The FNCAUR and the AUR  have organised and carried out hundreds of cultural and educational programmes in various regions of Russia.

We appeal to you to use your good offices to ensure that the Ukrainian minority in the Russian Federation is not left without a federal organization.

There have been many other manifestations of a hostile attitude of the Russian authorities towards the Ukrainian minority in the Russian Federation. We have written to you and to your predecessor about this in the past, but to no effect.  Permit us to recall a number of examples:

Three leading members of the Ukrainian community, Vladilir Poburinnyi (Владимир Побуринный, Ивановская обл.), Anatolii Kril (Анатолий Крыль, Владивосток) and Vladimir Senishin (Владимир Сенишин, Тула), have been killed in Russia since 2002. In addition there were attempts on the lives of Metropolitan Adrian Starina (Митрополит Адриан, Ногинск, МО), Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate) and on Natalia Kovaliova (Наталья Ковальова) and, recently, on prof. Nikolai Kernеsiuk (Николай Кернесюк) in Ekaterinburg on  Feb. 2010,  No perpetrators of these crimes were ever charged or convicted.

Ukrainian organisations in various regions (St. Petersburg, Surgut, Voronezh, Ufa, Ekaterinburg, Noginsk,Tula) have also been under pressure of the authorities.

In 2007 the Ukrainian Library in Moscow was “cleaned out”. Eight staff members were dismissed “at their own request”, and a new Director, Natalia Sharina, was appointed. Books, journals and newspapers that were not to the liking of the Moscow authorities were removed or destroyed; a unique archive of newspapers was destroyed. Even so, the library was  searched three times in December 2010 and January 2011 by Russian anti-extremism and anti-terrorism personnel. The officers removed some 50 items of literature from the library, as well as computer equipment and readership cards.  They even assaulted the new Director of the Library, as a result of which she required hospitalisation.

The Ukrainian educational centre in Moscow was closed in 2008 after over 10 years of successful activity on the grounds that it did not have an “approved programme of studies”.  As a result today in Moscow, there is not a single school for the Ukrainian community, which numbers some 200,000 persons. The situation is essentially the same outside Moscow, as there is not a single state-supported school with Ukrainian language instruction in the entire RF.

The municipal authorities of the city of Noginsk (Moscow region) have persistently declined to transfer ownership of the Sviato-Troitsky church building to the Sviato-Troitsky parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC KP), even though they have used the church for over 15 years. This parish is the only parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate in the entire RF,  which has premises in which religious services can be held. Communities of the faithful of the UOC KP in other locations, including Moscow, have been unable to secure premises for religious services, nor given permission to construct churches at their cost.  We appeal to you to amend legislation of the RF, which is discriminatory against the “non-traditional” churches.

High officials of the Russian Federation have made many pronouncements about the friendship and cooperation between the “fraternal” Ukrainian and Russian peoples. However, repressions against leading members of the Ukrainian minority in Russia, against Ukrainian organisations and churches continue unabated. Sadly, all this points to a hostile attitude of the Russian authorities towards the Ukrainian minority in the Russian Federation. The ethno-cultural situation of the Ukrainian minority in Russia continues to be woefully poor in comparison to that of the Russian minority in Ukraine.

We appeal to you to ensure that the pressure by Russian authorities on the activity and organisations of the Ukrainian minority in Russia be ceased. We call upon you to reopen the investigation of the assaults and killing of activists of the Ukrainian community in Russia. Freedom of conscience and freedom of religion of Ukrainian Churches in Russia must be assured.  

We wish you success in your service for the good of all the peoples of the Russian Federation and look forward to your reply.

Sincerely yours,
