The Russian Investigation Committee has opened the criminal case against several officials serving with Ukraine's Chief Military Prosecutor's Office. The reason is that they had initiated cases against 19 judges of Russia's Constitutional Court who recognized the judiciary effect of the treaty on Crimea joining Russia legally. Svetlana Petrenko, the official spokeswoman for the Russian Investigation Committee said this as quoted by RIA Novosti news agency.
'The case was opened against deputy head of the department of Ukraine's Chief Military Prosecutor's Office Vadym Pryimachok and other workers of this office. They are charged with bringing the innocent to responsibility, with charging the people with having committed an extremely tough crime', Petrenko said.
According to the Russian authority, it was Pryimachok who brought the said Russian judges to responsibility. 'He must have realized that the actions of Russian judges did not make any violation or a crime; on the contrary, their decisions were made according to the Russian and international law', the official concluded.
