Moscow bans protest against political repressions ‘due to lack of political repressions’

Wie grandios, auf so ‘ne absurde WTF-Idiots-Art: Russland verbietet Proteste gegen Menschenrechtsverletzungen, weil es in Russland keine Menschenrechtsverletzungen gäbe, weil die Verfassung Menschenrechte gewährleiste. Die Begründung muss ich mir merken.

The Moscow authorities have refused to grant permission for a rally against “political repressions” and “violations of human rights,” saying that state law does not recognize such a phenomenon in the country. The application to hold the event was rejected by the authorities on the grounds that the “current law does not provide any measures used by the state for repression based on political motives,” the official refusal letter reads.

The letter further explained, “in accordance to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the government guarantees equal rights and freedom of the individual.” The letter also said that the constitution rejects any forms of violation of human rights based on “social, racial, national, language or religious affiliation.” The constitution also guarantees judicial protection.
