“An individual cannot address to the Hague International Criminal Court, because this is within jurisdiction of a state,” he told ITAR-TASS, adding that “I ask the Foreign Ministry to initiate this address from Russia.” In his words, the initiative dwells on facts of genocide against Russian-speaking population, primarily recent events in the Ukrainian Black Sea port city of Odessa where civilians were actually burnt alive.
Asked about chances to try the case in the Hague International Tribunal Markelov stated that the international criminal court should reply to such addresses. The lawmaker is confident that a response will follow, but it is still difficult to say whether it will be negative or positive. “The International Criminal Court should respond to facts of extermination of civilians by punitive squads and people who are in power in Ukraine should be brought to justice,” he stated.
Markelov also affirms that the genocide of the Russian speakers in Ukraine continues, noting that the situation will keep worsening in the future.
