Nationwide voting in the Russian Federation on constitutional amendments concluded on 1 July. Some amendments concern changes in the political system and the work of the executive, legislative and judicial branches.

La tortura niega la dignidad del ser humano. Sus víctimas sufren heridas visibles e invisibles. Y sigue siendo una terrible realidad hoy en día. En el Día Internacional en apoyo de las Víctimas de la Tortura, Josep Borrrell, el Alto Representante de la UE afirma: «En estos momentos en que en el mundo se están aunando esfuerzos para superar la pandemia de coronavirus, los derechos humanos deben seguir siendo el eje de nuestra batalla. En este día, damos voz a los cientos de miles de víctimas de torturas y a quienes aún están siendo torturados hoy.»

Torture denies the dignity of the human being. Its victims suffer both visible and invisible wounds. And this is still the horrifying reality today. On International Day in support of Victims of Torture, EU High Representative Josep Borrrell states “At a time when the world is joining efforts to overcome the coronavirus pandemic, human rights must remain at the core of our battle. On this day, we give a voice to the hundreds of thousands of people who have been victims of torture and those who are still tortured today.”

La torture nie la dignité de l’être humain. Ses victimes souffrent de blessures visibles et invisibles. Et c'est, aujourd’hui encore, la terrifiante réalité. En cette journée internationale pour le soutien aux victimes de la torture, le haut représentant de l’UE, Josep Borrell, fait la déclaration suivante: «À l’heure où le monde unit ses efforts pour surmonter la pandémie de coronavirus, les droits de l’homme doivent rester au centre de notre combat. En ce jour, nous faisons entendre les voix des centaines de milliers de personnes qui ont été victimes de torture ou qui le sont encore aujourd’hui.»

A tortura nega a dignidade ao ser humano. As vítimas de tortura têm feridas visíveis e feridas invisíveis. E esta realidade horrível continua a existir atualmente. No Dia Internacional de Apoio às Vítimas de Tortura, o alto representante da UE, Josep Borrrell, declara: «Numa altura em que o mundo está a unir esforços para ultrapassar a pandemia do coronavírus, os direitos humanos devem continuar a estar no centro da nossa batalha. Neste dia, damos voz às centenas de milhares de pessoas que foram vítimas de tortura, bem como às que ainda hoje são sujeitas a tortura.»
