MOSCOW, August 3 /TASS/. Russia’s Investigation Committee has published the White Book of crimes committed in south-eastern Ukraine.
"This book is unique because it is based on evidence, which the Investigation Committee collected when investigating crimes linked to the use of prohibited means and methods of warfare," Vladimir Markin, the committee’s spokesman, told TASS on Monday. The book contains the evidence given by participants in those events as well as photos and materials provided by international organizations that fix the proof of the war crimes committed in south-eastern Ukraine.
Markin said the main purpose of the White Book edited by Investigation Committee’s Head Alexander Bastryk was to call the attention of the world community and international human rights groups to the flagrant acts of violence against civilians, including innocent women and children in the first place, with an aim to impel the world community to be more active in seeking a peaceful settlement of the Ukraine crisis.
"The materials collected in the book give an objective analysis of the situation in south-eastern Ukraine in terms of observance of human rights and the rule of law".
