Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office has officially charged Russia's Constitutional Court with aiding and abetting in Crimea's annexation in February 2014.  Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko posted that on Facebook. 

The respective notice was released on March 1 and delivered by courier mail on March 6. Now, the Russian judges are obliged to show up at the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office on March 13 and March 19.  

The judges are accused of conniving the 'deliberate actions, committed in pursuit of changing the state borders of Ukraine - in breach of the order set by the Constitution of Ukraine, by the authority representatives, under a previous agreement among a number of individuals, which led to grave consequences'.

'The judges of the Constitutional Court of Russia... unanimously recognized the allegedly 'constitutional', in fact, a miserable agreement between the Russian Federation and the so-called Republic of Crimea that foresees that the latter becomes a part of the Russian Federation,' Prosecutor General's Office said in its statement. 'Thus, the artificial legitimization of occupation of part of Ukraine, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, would be impossible without the mentioned illegal decision of the judges of the Russian Constitutional Court'.  

If the judges do not show up at the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office in the designated time, they will be put on the wanted list.
