The ministry has opened five criminal cases against Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov and Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s adviser Anton Gerashchenko said.
“We understand that they cannot be arrested in Russia. And so we are instituting various proceedings and planning to ask Interpol not to allow these persons to travel to other countries,” he said.
On July 25, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s Main Investigative Department charged Shoigu, Zyuganov and Zhirinovsky with “sponsoring separatism”.
“These persons have been charged with financing activities aimed at changing the borders of territories and the state border of Ukraine,” the Interior Ministry’s adviser Zoryan Shkiryak said earlier.
The Interior Ministry also charged Shoigu with “creating unlawful paramilitary or armed groups”.
