Information received concerning the statement on “Two-Pillar solution to address tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy” [hereafter- Two Pillar Solution], agreed upon on 8 October 2021, under the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project (BEPS). Concerns have been raised about the scope and contents of the announced agreement. Among those concerns, several low and middle-income countries consider that the agreement does not respond to their needs and would diminish their fiscal space, especially at a time when countries are seeking to recover from the crisis resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. In turn, the Two Pillar Solution would negatively affect their ability to meet the needs of their populations and thus to realize human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights, and the right to development.

Information received concerning alleged violations of fundamental freedoms in the Russian Federation in the context of the ongoing and nation-wide peaceful protests against the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces that have taken place on a daily basis since 24 February 2022. In particular, we call attention to various alleged human rights violations reportedly committed in response to these protests, including instances of excessive use of force against protesters and the mass arrests of participants in these rallies, as well as a broader pattern of heightened restrictions to fundamental freedoms in the build-up to these protests. The issue of the use of excessive force against peaceful protesters by members of the police force was previously the subject of several communications issued by United Nations special procedures, including RUS 2/2021 and RUS 6/2019. We appreciate the replies to RUS 6/2019, received on 28 November 2019, as well as to RUS 2/2021, received on 20 April 2021.
