Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine welcomed the sentence in the case of Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic. On March 24, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) sentenced former Serbian military leader to 40 years of imprisonment; he was found guilty in crimes against humanity during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s.      

“The decision of the ICTY clearly shows that any crime against humanity, any disregard for principles of international humanitarian law will result in punishment, regardless the time period that elapsed since the commission of offence. Sooner or later, every criminal will be judged”, reads the message. The Ministry noted that Russian officials and specifically judges involved in crimes against Ukraine – such as illegal occupation of Crimea and Sevastopol, murders and tortures in Donbas and Crimea and prosecution of Ukrainian political prisoners – should remember that punishment is inevitable.
