MOSCOW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The May 2 events in Odessa can be considered a war crime, Russia’s high-ranking diplomat said.
“Reports have come that Ukrainian law enforcers used inhumane weapons — fragmentation and cluster bombs. Artillery and air strikes were delivered on peaceful civilians,” the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights Anatoly Viktorov said.
He spoke at a news conference on Wednesday, devoted to large-scale violations of human rights and unrest in Ukraine in late 2013 and early 2014.
“There are reports that toxic substances were used in Odessa. If it is really so, this can be considered a war crime under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court,” he said.
