KIEV, August 26. /TASS/. The Ukrainian security service has filed war crimes charges against the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov.
Ukraine’s security agency said on its Telegram channel that there was "irrefutable evidence" that Chechnya’s president as well as Daniil Martynov, deputy chief of the Federal Service of Troops at the Russian National Guard in Chechnya, and Khusein Mezhidov, the commander of a tactical group of the Yug battalion, had committed war crimes.
The charges brought against Kadyrov under three articles of the criminal code relate to "waging an aggressive war" and "committing deliberate acts with a view to changing Ukraine’s borders."
Martynov, who is now deputy advisor to the Russian emergencies minister, and Mezhidov are, among other things, accused of "breaking the rules of war and harsh treatment of prisoners of war and civilians."
