The United States has one of the worst human rights records in the world, according to a report by Russia's Foreign Ministry.
The report, which the ministry has submitted to the lower house of Russian State Duma for deliberations, denounced the US for its dismal human rights record, citing child molestation, invasion of privacy, police brutality and restrictions on the freedom of expression.
The report noted that "hundreds of thousands of children" are maltreated in the US every year, which has led to 1,600 deaths in 2010 alone.
"About one police officer in 100 has been involved in criminal abuses, including sexual harassment, indecent behavior or rape," it said.
"The US remains the country with the largest prison population in the world - 2.2 million," the report underlined.
The Russian report also criticized a US legislation authorizing "special services" to keep tabs on all private electronic messages without any judicial order.
