92 Ukrainian Armed Forces Personnel Charged With Crimes Against Humanity by the Kremlin
MOSCOW - Alexander Bastrykin, Russian investigative committee head, has told the government news site Rossiiskaya Gazeta, that over 1,300 criminal investigations have begun, regarding war crimes in Ukraine.
So far, 92 Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel have been charged. He has also suggested that an international tribunal with other countries including Iran, Syria, and Bolivia be conducted, says the BBC.
In addition to these 92 Ukrainian servicemen, there are an additional 96 individuals wanted for questioning, which includes 51 armed forces commanders, said Bastrykin.
"The Ukrainians were involved in crimes against the peace and security of humanity" - Bastrykin
Claims have not been able to be independently verified, and Kyiv has yet to comment on the current situation. Kyiv did say earlier in the month, that it was examining more than 21,000 war crimes and aggression, which were allegedly committed by Russian forces, beginning in February with the start of the invasion.
The 1st war crime trial was actually held in May by Ukraine, where a tank commander in the Russian military was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the merciless killing of a civilian.
Described as a crime scene, the International Criminal Court ( ICC ), now has a forensics team on the ground in Ukraine and is currently conducting its own investigation into war crimes.
Moscow has denied all accusations of war crimes, and specifically that it has been targeting civilian populations. Moscow has vehemently stated that Ukraine is guilty of shelling its own infrastructure and civilian populations, the majority of which has been totally dismissed by international leaders and investigators.
Along with the military servicemen accused, Moscow has also accused workers in the Ukrainian health ministry of developing weapons of mass destruction, without providing any evidence to support his claims. Mercenaries from countries such as the US, UK, Canada, and the Netherlands as well as Georgia, are also under investigation, according to the BBC.
Three such people being accused of being mercenaries are 2 Brits and 1 Moroccan, though their families have stressed that they are long-serving members of the Ukrainian military. Their names are Aiden Aslin, Shaun Pinner, and Brahim Saaudun, respectively.
