MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. The Russian Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case against an employee of the Ukrainian security agencies who recruited teenagers to carry out explosions in the Donbass region, the committee’s spokesman Vladimir Markin has told TASS.
The Investigative Committee’s Main Investigation Department has opened a criminal case against an employee of the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies Igor Ritsko and other unidentified persons for the crime under Part 1 Article 356 of Russia’s Criminal Code (use of prohibited means and methods of warfare)," he said.
According to Markin, a group of seven teenagers carried out eight explosions at civilian infrastructure and military facilities in the city of Yasinovataya in the Donetsk region between May 2015 and June 2016 under instructions from Ritsko.
He noted that Ritsko and other unidentified employees of Ukraine’s security agencies, in violation of the provisions of international legal acts that guarantee observance and protection of the rights of civilian population, including minors, involved some juvenile residents of Yasinovataya in committing serious and particularly grave crimes during the armed conflict in May 2015. "They did that by means of promising material reward, blackmail and threats," Markin said.
