At a joint briefing with DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko, LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky stated that the DNR and the LNR want the UN Security Council to establish an international tribunal to investigate war crimes committed by the junta aggressors in Novorossiya, saying, “The DNR and LNR ask the UN Security Council to establish an international tribunal to prosecute those responsible for violations of international humanitarian law and crimes against humanity in the Ukraine, to open criminal prosecution against the Ukrainian aggressors for their war crimes in the Donbass”. Zakharchenko noted, “It’s senseless to expect that Kiev would hold an objective investigation of their own war crimes. For instance, the so-called Tornado Battalion killed more than a dozen civilians [in a single incident]. In our opinion, an international body should investigate and expose the facts”. Plotnitsky added, “We call on the UN Secretary General, the permanent members of the Security Council… the USA, France, Britain, China, and Russia… to immediately discuss the formation of such a tribunal at their next meeting and prepare an appropriate resolution. We’ll give an official international tribunal all of our knowledge, evidence, and other information about war crimes committed by Ukrainian security forces in the Donbass to help an objective investigation, to bring the perpetrators to justice”.
