Russia Criticises US For Human Rights Abuses

We are by no means perfect, but I would put our record up against any other country in the world; especially Russia.

"Russia's Foreign Ministry has attacked America's human rights record in its first report on injustice elsewhere in the world, offering examples such as the Guantanamo Bay prison and wrongful death row convictions to paint the U.S. as hypocritical for lecturing other nations on the subject of rights.

'The situation in the United States is a far cry from the ideals that Washington proclaims,' says the newly-released report.

Moscow has previously reacted angrily to the accusations of human rights breaches that the U.S. State Department has leveled at Russia in its annual reports.
