The use of force against demonstrators movement Occupy Wall Street is excessive, said Konstantin Dolgov, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs with responsibility for human rights on Tuesday evening.
“As for the reaction of the authorities to these protests, including the United States, there may be cases of unjustified brutality and excessive use of force,” we read in a commentary published on Mr. Dolgov the site of the Russian Ministry.
The movement “Occupy Wall Street,” which denounces the unemployed and the excessive power of finance, was started on September 17 in New York before spreading to other U.S. and European cities.
According to Mr Dolgov, most events take place in calm, while television stations broadcast images of brutal dispersal by police of peaceful assembly.
Moscow believes that “the governments of the United States and several Western European countries do not always respond adequately to public outcry.” At the same time, Russia does not in any way question the need to ensure security and maintain law and order, said Mr. Dolgov.
