However, some delegates have also come forth to say Russia has the right to impose laws that prevent protests to maintain law and order in the country. Among these delegates are State Andrei Loginov, Secretary & Deputy Justice Minister of Moscow. He also adds that Russia’s special military force, which is set in Ukraine, is not directly involved with the issue.

In the Universal periodic review at Geneva with all members of the UN, these issues were raised. This is where Russia came under a blanket of scrutiny from every delegate after Vladimir Putin ordered an unexpected invasion on the Ukraine grounds.

There was a denouncement of a few activities carried out by Russia. The Western countries asked the UN to take strict action to stop the arrest of rights defenders like Vladimir Kara-Murza and Alexei Navalny, Ukrainian children, and Russia’s oppression of civilians.

“Where does the beginning lie? Since the previous UPR, Russia’s domestic repression has heightened, allowing for its suppression abroad, including the ongoing atrocities in Ukraine,” expressed the British ambassador in Geneva. (Source)
