When Germany knows many cases of violation of press freedom and of human rights in the country the 14th of January the German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, SPD, was at the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna to present the priorities of the German OSCE Chairmanship. Steinmeier, in his speech, underlined the importance of press freedom and of the protection of human rights…

Terrorists with blood on their hands. Already in May 2014 Steinmeier pronounced himself again the participation for talks of the leaders of the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics in Donbass by saying, «those (talking about the people of Donetsk and Lugansk) who have blood on their hands do not have their place to take part in talks». Steinmeier did not recognize the popular referendum in Donbass. During his speech in Vienna Steinmeier invited the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, who, up to the Ukrainian Web-Portal, «provided compelling evidence of systematic flagrant violations of the Minsk agreements by militants, including the use of heavy weapons that must have been withdrawn» but neglected to invite officials from the Donbass.

Press freedom and more human rights. More than 423 children (official number for the year 2014) are removed from their family every day with the use of violence by the Jugendamt. Experts of early childhood promote the taking into custody of a child by any suspicion. People who criticize the system can be put into a psychiatric hospital. Supporters of Pegida lose their job and are menaced to see their children to be taken into custody by the Jugendamt. Seniors are invited to sign an agreement to give their corpse after their death to the plastination. Journalists are fired when they express their free point of view.

How can the OSCE in those conditions under the Germany’s OSCE Chairmanship defend the human rights in Ukraine and in the world?
