According to her, the Baltic authorities "have embarked on a deliberate squeezing out of the country of the Russian-speaking population."

"I believe that the deliberate creation of conditions that force citizens to leave Latvia is a gross violation of human rights," she wrote on Telegram.

Moskalkova said she would appeal to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk and the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović with a request to draw attention to the violation of the rights of Russians.

Earlier, the special correspondent of the media group "Russia Today" Alexei Stefanov said that the Ministry of Education of Latvia gave instructions to destroy books in Russian language.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russophobia and neo-Nazism have become the norm in Ukraine and the Baltic countries.
