U.S. Human Rights Slammed

The Foreign Ministry has attacked the U.S. human rights record in a report on injustice and violations around the globe.

In the paper published on Wednesday, Moscow criticized U.S. President Barack Obama for "legalizing indefinite and extrajudicial custody and the return of court-martials."

In its first-ever report on breaches of human rights abroad, Russia focused on EU nations, Canada and Georgia, but spent the most time on the United States.

The ministry has in the past criticized accusations of human rights breaches from the U.S. State Department.
