According to the head of the Russian investigative commission, Russia is planning its own court, which has not yet been created. More than 220 Ukrainians would be charged there – for crimes against humanity.

Russia wants to indict hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers for crimes against humanity in a court that has yet to be created. More than 220 people, including representatives of the high command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and commanders, attacked the civilian population, the Russian daily Rossiyskaya Gazeta reported, quoting Alexander Bastrykin, head of the Russian investigative commission.

Three countries would like to participate

Because the United Nations is dominated by the West, such a tribunal should instead be run by a partner organization of Russia, Bastrykin said. According to him, Bolivia, Iran and Syria, among others, have expressed interest in participating.

Ukrainians are involved in “imprescriptible crimes against the peace and security of mankind”. Russia has indicted 92 commanders and their subordinates and put 96 others on the wanted list.

Investigations also against Western fighters

Bastrykin, a former student friend of Kremlin boss Vladimir Putin, also reported on investigations of Britons, Americans, Canadians, Dutch and Georgians for mercenary activity. They are accused of having fought alongside Ukraine during the war. The Donetsk separatists, allied with the Russians, have already sentenced two Britons and a Moroccan to death for this reason. The appeal process is still ongoing.

The Russian attack on Ukraine began on February 24. Russia is talking about a special operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. Information provided by warring parties on the course of fighting often cannot be independently verified.
