THE HELSINKI Committee for Human Rights in Slovakia called on the representatives of the Russian Federation not to abuse the situation in Ukraine and interfere in the internal affairs of the country, and to fully respect its sovereignty.

“We express full solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their efforts for more democracy, freedom, a decent life and the possibility of an independent choice of their future,” the committee wrote in a statement provided to the SITA newswire by its chairman Kalman Petocz.

The commitee also addressed the state bodies of Ukraine in its statement, calling on them to adhere to principles of democracy, the protection of basic rights and freedoms and to effectively prevent the spreading of extremist expressions and movements.

The committee calls for increased engagement of European and regional bodies and institutions in solving the crisis, mainly the EU, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the V4, and the BSEC.

Slovakia’s three top constitutional representatives are scheduled to meet over the situation in Ukraine Monday afternoon. The Security Council will be convened after Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčák returns from Brussels later today, the Slovak Radio reported.
