Feygin: International tribunal over Russia’s top-rank officials possible
Ukraine now should put in all efforts to bring them to responsibility, if such court is to emerge at all, - Russian lawyer
Mark Feygin, the Russian lawyer and defender of Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia, doesn’t rule out that the international tribunal over Russia’s highly-ranked officials will take place. In his interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel, he commented on the most recent reports that Ukraine’s PGO (Prosecutor General’s Office) put on the wanted list 39 Russian officials – for fueling the armed conflict in Ukraine.
According to Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, among those nailed on charges are Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Putin’s counselor Vladislav Surkov, Plenipotentiary of the Crimean Federal District Oleg Belaventsev, Minister of Defence Sergey Shoygu and two of his Deputies, and 10 generals from the senior officers of the Armed Forces of Russia are among nailed on charges.
‘I think Ukraine should perform all legal proceedings for such court to appear – who knows, it just might. I can’t tell now whether this will have any consequences. Russian officials will most likely ignore Ukraine’s request to testify. But that doesn’t mean Ukraine should not gather the respective materials’, Feygin said.
On August 8, the Prosecutor General’s Office reported that a number of Russia’s highly-ranked officials are suspected of committing core crimes against the national security of Ukraine. On August 22, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko reported that the officials are put on the wanted list.
