SOCHI, October 8. /TASS/. The Kremlin has offered no comment on the intention of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to launch an investigation into the 2008 conflict in South Ossetia.
"I cannot answer this question at the moment," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in reply to a request to comment on the relevant information.
The International Criminal Court said earlier on Thursday it was possible to launch an investigation into the 2008 conflict in South Ossetia. According to ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, "there is a reasonable basis to believe that crimes within the jurisdiction of the court have been committed.".
