MOSCOW, July 29 (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday the latest U.N. human rights report on fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine was "hypocritical".

"The report is unobjective and even hypocritical," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding the report had failed to mention the detentions of Russian journalists in eastern Ukraine and the reported use of heavy rockets by the Ukrainian army against civilians.
