MOSCOW, June 21, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee has issued a resolution to indict the governor of Ukraine’s Dnepropetrovsk Region, Igor Kolomoisky and parliament-appointed Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on charges of using prohibited means and methods of warfare, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin has told Itar-Tass.
“In the near future the investigators will put Avakov and Kolomoisky on the international wanted list and request a court warrant for their arrest,” he said.
Within the framework of the same criminal case measures are being taken to identity the commanders and rank-and-file of the Ukrainian Armed forces, the National Guard of Ukraine and Right Sector militants who have participated in the military operation against civilians in the southeast of Ukraine,” Markin said.
Nearly fifteen hundred people have been recognized as victims of prohibited means of warfare in Ukraine, he told.
“A group of investigators in charge of this criminal case have been conducting extensive inquiries and questionings in the territories of the Rostov Region, the Republic of Crimea, and also Belgorod, Voronezh, Bryansk and Kursk regions. They have interviewed 2,350 witnesses and 1,420 people, including 208 minors, have been recognized as victims. More than one thousand people have handed over to Russian investigators their complaints to be taken to the International Criminal Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
