“30 years ago, on December 1, 1990, the chairmen of the Supreme Councils of the Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian Republics A. Gorbunov, V. Landsbergis and A. Ruutel signed the Resolution on National Equality,” the text says.
It is specified that after 30 years "there is no trace of this good intention (resolution)."
"Attention is drawn to the continuing unfavorable situation in the country with minorities, especially the Russian-speaking," the diplomatic mission added.
The report notes that the main problems are discrimination against the Russian-speaking population in the education system and the "phenomenon of statelessness" - residents with such a status cannot participate in the political life of the country.
In December 2019, Russia's Permanent Representative to the OSCE, Alexander Lukashevich, announced violations of the rights of the Russian-speaking population and attempts to question the status of the Russian language as the language of national minorities in the Baltics.
