Prosecutor General of Ukraine Iryna Venedyktova said that the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague can handle 24 cases related to the annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas as Ukraine 24 TV channel reported.

“Ukraine today is in several international courts - the International Criminal Court, besides, there is the International Court of Justice in The Hague, a court of justice, and we also have the Strasbourg Court of Human Rights. We have four cases in the Strasbourg court, two cases in the court of justice. Here we have not yet gone directly to the court. This is only a stage for the prosecutors to enter the investigation. What are we going to investigate here? We have 24 reports - both Crimea and Donbas. The last thing we gave is very important, prisoner parades. For example, 2014. I still remember when 57 of our prisoners marched through the so-called "parade" in Donetsk, when they were mocked. It remains in everyone's memory," the Prosecutor General said.
