KIEV, September 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian courts have rulings on detention and delivery to the courtroom of all the eighteen high-rank Russian officials, against whom the Ukrainian prosecutorial agencies issued charges, the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, Yuri Lutsenko told a news briefing in Kiev.
The list of the eighteen persons includes Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and the presidential advisor Sergei Glazyev.
"There’s a court ruling as regards all the eighteen accused persons to detain and deliver them to the courtroom," Lutsenko said, adding that pretrial measures would be specified for them.
The procedure of sentencing in absentia will be applied of all the eighteen individuals and the prosecutors have already placed them on the national wanted lists.
Lutsenko gave the assurances the courts would stay the course in pressing forward with the case.
He said the Prosecutor’s Office realized the accused individuals would not come to Ukraine and that is why the agencies of law and order were cooperating with the office of the prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in the Hague on bringing them to account.
On August 8, the Prosecutor General’s Office instituted criminal cases over suspected crimes against the foundations of Ukraine’s national security.
Apart from Sergei Shoigu and Sergei Glazyev, the list also features the former plenipotentiary representative of the Russian President in the Crimean Federal District, Oleg Belaventsev, two Deputy Ministers of Defense, and ten generals from among the top commanders of the Russian Armed Forces.
According to Lutsenko, all the individuals are charged with particularly heinous crimes against the foundations of Ukraine’s national security, public security, peace, and international order.
