The European Parliament passed respective resolution
The Hague International Court should start investigation on crimes committed by Russia during and after the illegal annexation of Crimea. That is mentioned in the resolution on Crimea approved by the European Parliament on February 4.
“The European Parliament calls on the Russian Federation authorities and the de facto authorities in Crimea, which are bound by international humanitarian law and international human rights law, to grant unimpeded access to Crimea for international institutions and independent experts from the OSCE, the United Nations and the Council of Europe (…); urges the international community, including the Hague Court, to start investigation of potential crimes committed during and after the illegal annexation of Crimea”, reads the document.
In the resolution, the European Parliament recommends to develop new sanctions against Russia due to the Crimea’s annexation. The authoritative body also supported the idea to create Geneva+ format for negotiations about de-occupation of Crimea, and condemned Crimea’s militarization by Russia, as well as its threat to plant nuclear weapons at the peninsula.
Previously, the European Parliament approved the signature of the Ukraine-Eurojust cooperation agreement.
