Jobbik wrote a letter regarding the mass graves in Donetsk

Friday, October 17, 2014

The Jobbik party following the military situation in Ukraine since the outbreak of the civil war. The war inflicts untold sufferings on the civilian population living in the eastern regions yet the western media projects a rather one-sided picture of the situation; it is long suspected that a humanitarian disaster has been unfolding in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions due to the unjustified aggression of the Ukrainian army and the indifference of Western powers.

While Jobbik politicians have always made their voices heard and stood up for the people living in the war-torn regions, the news that recently came to light about mass graves raises the suspicion that crimes against humanity have been committed in those regions, which are similar to the crimes committed in the Balkan wars. The area where the mass graves have been found controlled by Ukrainian forces; due this fact the western media chooses to remain silent about the atrocities, which makes them an accomplice in the enormity of the crimes perpetrated by forces under the control of the Kiev leadership.

Sometime ago, Jobbik Chairman Gábor Vona wrote an open letter to the United Nations, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, OSCE Secretary General and the president of the International Red Cross asking them to investigate the incidents of mass graves in the Donetsk region.

In the letter the Jobbik president stressed that Jobbik has never accepted double standards and always stood up for the innocent sufferers. The position of the Jobbik party is that the crimes should be investigated and those responsible should be brought to justice. However, it seems that at this point in time it can be done only by the involvement of impartial international organizations.

Gábor Vona expressed his hope that the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the Red Cross can work together, despite the often manipulated news reports and uncover the truth in order to clarify the situation and find those committed the crimes and responsible for the atrocities reported only by the Russian media, but not the mainstream Western press.
