Details: He added that the group worked on the release of political prisoners at the beginning of its existence, but gradually "broadened its mandate".
FYI Wästberg became the founder of the Swedish branch of Amnesty International in 1963. From 1976 to 1982 he was editor-in-chief of Sweden's largest daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter. Wästberg is also a member of the Nobel Prize Committee for Literature.
Background:
On August 4, the human rights organization Amnesty International said in its report that the Ukrainian military is endangering the civilian population. However, the document did not say a word about the crimes of the invaders.
The Presidential Office said that only the Russian army threatened the lives of Ukrainians and condemned Amnesty International's selectivity.
The head of the Ukrainian office Oksana Pokalchuk left her post after the organization's scandal report.
Amnesty International headquarters said it regretted the "suffering and anger" caused by her testimony.
