MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee has opened more than 100 criminal cases over international crimes committed in the southeast of Ukraine, IC chief Aleksandr Bastrykin told the IC’s board meeting on Thursday.
"Since 2014 a total of 102 criminal cases have been opened to indict 90 persons. Most of these are Ukrainian military servicemen, starting from the defense minister to the commanders of individual army units who commit international crimes," Bastrykin said.
The IC has been pushing ahead with the investigation and gathering evidence to ensure "those responsible should bear fair and proper punishment."
"We are certain that such punishment should take effect sooner or later," he said.
