Ukrainian border guards patrol in the Kharkiv region near the border with Russia, on March 26, 2014The United States and Russia locked horns Wednesday over Ukraine during a session of the UN Human Rights Council, as Washington led a Western charge accusing Moscow of stoking strife in the ex-Soviet state. “We express our deepest concern regarding the continuing deterioration of the situation in Ukraine,” US rights envoy Paula Schriefer told the council. She condemned Russia’s “unsubstantiated narrative of human rights violations” against Russian-speakers in Ukraine, saying it had been deployed as a “justification for its military incursion”. “We are further concerned by Russian actions that continue to contribute to the deterioration of the situation, including its ongoing violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” she added.
