The international court for the crimes committed in the southeast of Ukraine must be organized in Crimea, Head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov said on Thursday.
“We suggest that this court be organized in Crimea because we know the mentality of the Ukrainian politicians that organized the actions in the southeast of Ukraine. We will find where to place the tribunal and we are ready to sue half of the Ukrainian Cabinet. We will arrange a special courtroom and a special cage for the defendants. The crimes committed by the command of Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and others must not be neglected,” Aksyonov said.
Earlier, Chairman of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation Alexander Bastrykin stressed the need to organize a court for considering crimes like the ones committed in the southeast of Ukraine. Senator from Crimea Olga Kovitidi appeared with a similar initiative.
On Feb 23, the website of the Ukrainian President published Poroshenko’s address to the people of Crimea, where he promises that sooner or later Crimea will go back to Ukraine. Poroshenko is also going to take the leaders of the Crimean Spring to international tribunals.
“Crimea has rejoined its historical homeland for ever. So, let them give up their illusions and address the problems faced by the state of Ukraine,” Aksyonov said in response to Poroshenko’s address.
