On the basis of the German legislative body, the formation of an inter-parliamentary humanitarian commission began, which will defend the rights of residents of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republic. This is reported on Thursday, December 12, by the German edition of News Front.
The authors of this initiative were the parliamentary faction of the Alternative for Germany party.
“With our human rights commission, we can mediate in conflicts where other organizations have failed because their experience is too one-sided”, – said Waldemar Gerdt, member of the Bundestag Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid Committee, emphasizing that “interference with Ukrainian government helped release the seven detained journalists”.
The deputy noted that the initiative of his party was well received at the international level. At the same time, he noted that the commission will also deal with the situation in the Balkans, the Caucasus and the Middle East.
Jurgen Braun, spokesman for the Alternative for Germany parliamentary faction, added that the problem with commissions and non-governmental organizations working in this direction is that they are forced to “hide classical human rights under the cover of left green ideologies such as migration and gender issues”.

“Together with friendly factions from other European countries, we want to return to classical human rights”, – the parliamentarian said.
“I am glad that my work and my visits to the DPR and LPR contributed to the creation of this humanitarian commission in the Bundestag, and now, finally, the rights of Donbass citizens are being examined in the Bundestag”, – said the deputy of the House of Representatives of Berlin from the party “Alternative for Germany” Gunnar Lindemann.
