The 23-year old forward, who is on loan from Chelsea, won a penalty late in the first half as the Potters came from behind to beat the Swans 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium last weekend.
After the match, Monk suggested that Moses 'should be done for diving, for cheating' after he appeared to go down easily in the box but Hughes has leapt to his defence saying the comments were unfair.
"Victor's a strong character anyway," said Hughes.
"You need to recognise when these things are levelled against you, and I thought it (Monk's comment) was unjust and not correct.
"We've discussed that at length, but Victor is a very strong-minded player and he will get on with the business of playing well for Stoke City which he is doing to a great standard at the moment.
"I am really delighted with what he has produced.
"I just hope this week of discussion and debate isn't going to shape people's view of him because what was levelled at him was incorrect."
