Russian President Vladimir Putin last week submitted to the State Duma the candidacy of Tatyana Moskalkova for the post of Ombudsman. Parliamentarians will discuss her candidacy on April 22.
State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin recalled that Tatyana Moskalkova has been protecting human rights for many years.
“She worked in law enforcement agencies – in the legal department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, then in the State Duma she represented the opposition Just Russia party, from which she was nominated for the post of human rights ombudsman,” Volodin said.
For five years in the position of Ombudsman, Moskalkova solved the most difficult problems, said the Chairman of the State Duma. According to him, she consistently defends her point of view, is attentive to her duties, works hard and conscientiously.
“This is a person with inexhaustible energy, he is never afraid of difficult trials,” Volodin believes.
The speaker recalled that traditionally the post of ombudsman was held by the most respected politicians and public figures, scientists and deputies.
“The institution of the ombudsman ensures guarantees of the rights and freedoms of a citizen, monitors their observance. The ombudsman participates in improving the legislation of the Russian Federation on human and civil rights,” said the Chairman of the State Duma.
