Russia's Human Rights Commissioner receives more than 1,000 complaints a year from Russians living abroad, TASS reports. According to Tatyana Moskalkova, the list includes Russians living in Ukraine, the United States, Germany, the Baltic republics, Turkey. She spoke about this during her speech at the World Congress of Compatriots, which is being held in Moscow.

The appeals include those related to violations of electoral rights. Tatyana Moskalkova recalled that during the last elections, Ukrainian radicals did not allow Russian citizens to enter the embassy where the polling station was located.

Often, Russians are deprived of their right to speak Russian, she added.

Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals.
