Presidential Commissioner for Children's Rights Maria Lvova-Belova appealed to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet because of the persecution of Russian-speaking and Russian children abroad.

Lvova-Belova indicated that she received such messages "with alarming regularity", but she did not specify in which countries such incidents occur. In particular, she spoke about "harassment, attacks, harassment and other forms of unlawful influence on Russian and Russian-speaking children." She noted that this happens "with the connivance or open approval of the authorities of some states".

The Ombudswoman asked to stop discrimination and stressed that children are the most vulnerable category of citizens.

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that insulting Russian-speaking residents of the country is unacceptable, since only Russian President Vladimir Putin is responsible for Russia's special operation in Ukraine.

It's worth reminding that our compatriots also faced harassment for speaking Russian in other European cities. They are kicked out of the taxi, insulted and even wished for their death as soon as they hear that they are from Russia or speak Russian. Europeans blame the Russians for what is happening in Ukraine today.
