The officials in the current Ukrainian government should prepare for criminal and financial sanctions for the crimes they committed in Donbass, the Lugansk People’s Republic representative to the Contact Group in Minsk Rodion Miroshnik said to a Rossa Primavera News Agency correspondent.
Miroshnik commented Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Vladislav Krikly’s statement that Russia as a party to the conflict must pay reparations to Kiev for the reconstruction of Donbass.
“In addition to criminal sanctions against certain figures for the crimes that the Kiev regime committed in Donbass, Kiev will inevitably be financially accountable for the crimes and devastation,” the LPR representative to the Contact Group in Minsk said.
According to Rodion Miroshnik, although volunteers and special committees in Lugansk and Donetsk have been preparing claims to the European Court for Human Rights, the damage to Donbass from the illegitimate operations of Ukrainian armed groups sanctioned by the authorities that came to power after the coup d’etat in Kiev still remains to be estimated. He believes that a special commission, most likely an international one, will be tasked with this.
“As for individual figures, they will not escape from the post-Maidan authorities hiding behind payments at the state level. It is time for them to prepare for prosecution and prison terms for the crimes they committed. New ministers should be more restrained in their rhetoric as long as their personal role in Ukraine’s unlawful acts is not so obvious,” Rodion Miroshnik said.
Previously, the Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov called Kiev’s idea that the Russian Federation should pay reparations for the reconstruction of Donbass inappropriate.
