Russia war crimes: Ukraine claims 15,000+ cases against Russia
Kyiv: Ukraine has recognized a few thousand thought atrocities in the eastern Donbas locale where Russian powers are squeezing their hostile, Kyiv’s main examiner said Tuesday.
The cases in the modern locale are among around 15,000 across Ukraine since Russian powers attacked on February 24, examiner general Iryna Venediktova said.
“Of course we started a few thousand cases about what we see in Donbas,” Venediktova told a news meeting in The Hague as she met global partners.
“If we speak about war crimes, it’s about possible transfer of people, we started several cases about possible transfer of children, adult people to different parts of the Russian Federation,,” she said.
“Then, of course, we can speak about torturing people, killing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure.”
Ukrainian specialists didn’t approach Russian-held areas of Donbas, yet they were talking with evacuees and detainees of war, Venediktova told the question and answer session at the base camp of EU legal organization Eurojust.
Altogether, Ukraine had recognized 15,000 atrocities cases since the Russian attack with 200 to 300 additional approaching in each day, she added.
Ukraine had distinguished 600 suspects for the “anchor” wrongdoing of hostility, including “elevated degree of top military, lawmakers and promulgation specialists of Russian Federation”, the examiner general said.
Almost 80 suspects had been distinguished for supposed atrocities that had really occurred on Ukrainian soil, she added.
Two Russian warriors were imprisoned for 11 and a half years by a Ukrainian court on Tuesday for shelling regular citizen regions, while one more was imprisoned for life recently for killing a non military personnel.
Three additional European nations – – Latvia, Estonia and Slovakia – – in the mean time joined a worldwide examination group testing atrocities in Ukraine on Tuesday.
Investigators from Poland, Lithuania and from the Hague-based International Criminal Court are as of now part of the group.
