Human rights activists call on the world to prosecute Russian propagandists who are inciting Russians to genocide of Ukrainians
The Crimean Human Rights Group called on the democratic countries and the Crimean Platform participant states to prosecute Russian propagandists who are inciting the Russians to commit genocide against the Ukrainian people.
Olha Skrypnyk, head of the Crimean Human Rights Group, made an according speech during the first parliamentary summit of the Crimean Platform, reports ZMINA.
The human rights activist recalled that throughout the years of Russian aggression, the aggressor country's mass media have been using hate speech. The attacks and hate speech targeted the Ukrainian church and activists.
"Russia's next step was to prepare the society for the idea that Ukraine does not exist as a state. It was then that Russians started calling for genocide. Today, public opinion leaders in Russia are not just propagandists, but accomplices in the international crime of incitement to genocide. That is why we call on the democratic countries to support the investigation of these crimes and ensure the accountability of these people," urged Olha Skrypnyk.
She added that the Crimean Human Rights Group is collecting information about the people who are producing this propaganda and calling on Russians to commit genocide.
"Such propaganda is active not only in Russia, but also in Europe and the USA. They are facilitating hatred towards Ukrainians, calling for our destruction. That is why we now hear about the worst crimes against men, women, and children in Bucha, Irpin, Mariupol, and other Ukrainian cities. Russian propaganda, which has turned to genocide calls, is a challenge to the entire civilized world, a powerful weapon that is destroying the system of democracy," the human rights activist stressed.
As IMI reported, on October 20, the "Antonyms" program aired a conversation between RT propagandist Anton Krasovsky and writer Sergey Lukyanenko. During the conversation, Krasovsky suggested drowning Ukrainian children who believe that Ukrainian territory is being occupied by Russia. Lukyanenko said that in 1980 he visited Ukraine as a child, and Russian-speaking Ukrainian children told him that Ukraine was occupied by "Muscovites".
Russian propaganda channel "Russia Today" fired their host Anton Krasovsky after his claims that Ukrainian children who believe that Ukraine's territory is occupied by Russia should be drowned. Anton Krasovsky himself wrote that he was "embarrassed" that he "somehow did not see the red line. About the children."
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called on all countries of the world to ban the propaganda channel RT.
