MOSCOW, August 24. /TASS/. The necessity for Russia’s Investigative Committee to make comments in connection with statements of Ukrainian politicians is dictated by the situation in Ukraine, committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said in an interview with the Izvestiya newspaper.
"It is up to the Foreign Ministry to work with normal law-governed states. But Ukrainian political realities are such that the Investigative Committee had to establish a department to investigate military and other international crimes on the part of Kiev’s politicians and generals," Markin said.
"And I have to comment on that, including explanations to the Kiev politicians themselves on their legal status and possible risks," he said.
