MOSCOW, July 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said there were enough grounds for suspecting Ukrainian law enforcers of hiding crimes.
“We seek to conduct a rapid and impartial investigation into all episodes of the Ukrainian tragedy that led to deaths of journalists and peaceful civilians - to begin with the ‘snipers case’ on Maidan. We voiced concern over the fact when the Ukrainian parliament-appointed head of the commission for investigating the ‘snipers case’ complained that the authorities cooperated with commission insufficiently. Since then, nothing has been heard about this case. I hope that the commission’s head is safe and sound,” Lavrov told a news conference after talks with Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini on Wednesday.
“We’re also concerned over the episode in Odessa when people were burned alive. Similar incidents are reported in other cities of Ukraine’s south-east,” he said.
“We demand international organizations, including the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the UN structures, persuade the Ukrainian authorities to make the investigation transparent and objective,” Lavrov said.
