Ever since the Ukrainian conflict broke out, Jobbik Movement for a Better Hungary has been following the news of combat events. Just like all other wars, this one is unfortunately causing immeasurable pain and suffering for the civilian population living in the region, too. In spite of a rather unilateral coverage of Western media, we have been suspecting that a humanitarian disaster may have taken place in the area of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts due to the unjustified aggression of the Ukrainian army and the indifference of Western powers.
Jobbik has always been speaking out for the people living in Eastern Ukraine, but the news of the recently uncovered mass graves surpasses all imagination and raises the suspicion of crimes against humanity similar to the ones committed in the Balkan wars of the 1990s. Since the graves are in the territories given up by the Ukrainian forces, Western media yet again chose to be silent about the case, thus approving of the horrible crimes allegedly committed by the forces under Kiev command.
Being aware of its moral obligation and responsibility for peace, Jobbik has decided to turn to the international community. On October 7 Party President Gábor Vona sent an open letter to the Human Rights Commissioners of the UN and the Council of Europe as well as the Secretary General of OSCE and the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, requesting them to investigate the case of the mass graves found in the Donetsk area.
As Gábor Vona writes in his letter, Jobbik has never accepted double standards and always stood out for innocent victims. The party president believes that the most important precondition for peace is to serve justice. Considering the conspiratorial silence of Western powers, justice cannot be served unless unbiased international organizations are involved.
In his letter, Gábor Vona expresses his hope that the UN, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the Red Cross can guarantee the revelation of the truth in spite of all the manipulated coverage, and we will finally be able to see clearly in the issue of the mass graves and the other alleged crimes that are reported in the Russian media but hushed up in the Western world.
