MOSCOW, September 01. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Red Cross organization has formed a commission to establish instnaces of war crimes in Ukraine for investigation, the head of the Moscow office of the organization, Igor Trunov, told a press conference on Monday, referring to use of weapons against the civilian population and civil objects in violation of the Geneva Convention.
Such facts have taken place in Ukraine. It is a crime that must be investigated by the International Criminal Court (ICC), Trunov said.
Ukraine is not a member of the International Criminal Court, and it has not ratified the Rome Statute, on the basis of which the ICC is established.
There are two ways to conduct an investigation and open criminal cases - following an ICC prosecutor’s demand and a report of the UN Security Council.
The commission begins collecting information about crimes committed against the civilian population in Ukraine to make a report and submit it to the international court and the UN Security Council, Trunov said.
The information will be also presented to the Russian Investigative Committee to open criminal cases in accordance with the international jurisdiction principles, he added. “We will insist on an international prosecutor’s investigation into the crimes,” deputy head of the Moscow Red Cross office Lyudmila Aivar said.
She asked media to provide photo and video materials as evidence of violations of human rights in Ukraine. “We have talks with the Investigative Committee and ask it to help collect evidence," Aivar added.
