MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not have information on Ukraine’s alleged plan to sue Russia in the International Criminal Court (ICC), and thus does not comment on it, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"I have had no chance to get familiarized with that information," Peskov told journalists.
"Frankly speaking, I have not heard about it, and hear it from you for the first time," he said when asked by a reporter to comment on the report.
Earlier, a number of media reported that Ukraine’s authorities collected materials on violations of international human rights allegedly committed by Russia during incorporation of Crimea, as well as the situation around Donbass. Kiev reportedly plans to file a relevant lawsuit to the ICC in the next few weeks.
Earlier, Russia’s Foreign Ministry, while commenting on Kiev’s such plans, said those guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Ukraine’s southeast should be sought among the supporters of the "party of war" in Kiev, not Russia.
The Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov said he would "agree that military crimes and crimes against humanity should have long been investigated."
"But people who committed and organized them should be sought in Ukraine, among representatives of the ‘party of war’," Dolgov said. "The Ukrainian authorities are not addressing that yet.".
