    MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 27 (RIA NOVOSTI) - Russia's human rights commissioner Vladimir Lukin thinks it urgent to set up a regional ombudsman institution in Chechnya. He made this statement when meeting Friday with Claudia Roth, a German Bundestag member, federal government commissioner for human rights policy and humanitarian aid, reports Lukin's press-service.

    Lukin believes the human rights commissioner post in Chechnya should be occupied by a man of high reputation who is capable of maintaining dialogue with all strata of the Chechen population.

    The introduction of this institution in Chechnya will help promote the effort of fostering in people respect for supreme law and human dignity, says Lukin.

    For her part, Claudia Roth noted that a OSCE conference on anti-Semitism to be held in Berlin over April 28-29 would become an important political humanitarian event not only for Germany but for all Europe. Russia's commissioner for human rights confirmed his intention to attend it.
