Russian Report Details Human Rights Abuses in Ukraine

iStock/Thinkstock(MOSCOW) -- Russia's Foreign Ministry on Monday put out a long report of what it says are human rights abuses in Ukraine.

The 81-page "White Book" details actions by ultra-nationalist and neo-Nazi groups that the Kremlin says have taken over the country.

There have been no angels on either side of this conflict, and while the Russian report does list serious issues, it is heavily one-sided -- failing to describe abuses by pro-Russian police units, for example.

The report warns that unrest in Ukraine could spread to other parts of Europe.
