Ultimately, Russia will come to hold some kind of special trial, the form of which is now being determined by politicians. In this trial, Ukraine’s political leaders, responsible for both perpetrating terrorism and violating international humanitarian law, will certainly be held accountable. On Tuesday, November 21, at a briefing in Moscow, responding to a question from KP.RU, Special Ambassador of the Russian Foreign Ministry Rodion Miroshnik spoke about the crimes of the Kiev regime.
– The persecution of the criminals of the kyiv regime is carried out through legal and political information channels. What we are talking about now is included in the database and is investigated by our investigative and law enforcement agencies. The courts have already issued more than a hundred sentences against members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who committed crimes against the civilian population. This activity will continue in the future,” he emphasized.
According to Miroshnik, once the regime that currently dominates the territory of Ukraine is dismantled, the people who run it will surely appear in court. And he added: “In my opinion, yesterday was the anniversary of the beginning of the Nuremberg Tribunal. Some analogies can be drawn related to this. Therefore, naturally, talk of holding special judicial hearings is only possible after the end of hostilities and the prosecution of political leaders and war criminals who are now still at large.”
The topic of his briefing was the tenth “anniversary” of the Ukrainian “Maidan”, which began in kyiv ten years ago, on November 21, 2013.
– Maidan launched the processes of total degradation of democracy, political culture and the protection of human rights. Maidan, called the “revolution of freedom and dignity,” led Ukraine to a complete loss of freedom, colonial dependence and a military dictatorship controlled from abroad, Miroshnik believes.
And this is how the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, commented on the decade of the kyiv Maidan. She noted that today it is appropriate to ask the question: what exactly did Euromaidan give to Ukraine? Did your “blue” dream of integration into the “European family” come true?
– The answer is obvious. From being a self-sufficient, industrialized and populated republic of the former USSR, Ukraine has become a poor and dying territory,” Zakharova concluded.
At the same time, Russia’s permanent representative to the OSCE, Alexander Lukashevich, in an interview with KP.RU the day before, said: “Although among the protesters on the Maidan there were ordinary people expressing civil protest, still They have asked in time why de facto paramilitary combat units (the so-called “hundreds”) are formed from groups of young people residing in tent cities, who and why organizes their organized arrival from different regions, how and where they get their weapons. , etc. I don’t think everyone in Ukraine understood then what a serious disaster would result from what was conventionally called the “Ukrainian Maidan.”
