The international community should know what is really happening in Donbas and what crimes Ukrainian servicemen are committing there. That is why it is necessary to give as much coverage of their illegal activities as possible, said Federation Council member Vladimir Dzhabarov.

Earlier, two residents of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Viktor Barkalov and Vadim Shulak sent appeals to several international organizations calling for attention to the war crimes committed by the Ukrainian authorities in Donbas and bringing those responsible to justice.

The appeals were also sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and the Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch human rights organizations.

Residents of Donbas accused former President Petr Poroshenko and the incumbent government in Kiev of deliberate targeting of civilians, attacks on women and children, and murders on ethnic grounds. Ukrainian authorities’ actions qualify as a crime against humanity and, in fact, the genocide of the Russian-speaking population.

According to Vladimir Dzhabarov, a member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation, appeals of this kind to international institutions are very important.

“If the OSCE keeps silent and does not notice the bombing of civilians, schools and other social facilities and if some countries that are guarantors of the Minsk agreements, namely France and Germany, cannot stop such crimes committed by Ukraine, then the only thing left is to appeal to international organizations to obtain justice. This is what has been done and it should be certainly supported by everyone,” he said.

According to Dzhabarov, it is necessary to provide wide coverage of the events that can help bring war criminals to justice.

“It is necessary to show everything that the Kyiv regime is doing to the civilian population of Donbas, its citizens, and fellow countrymen. Nothing should be hidden, no crimes or that sort of things. The Ukrainian authorities misrepresent the situation in this region by calling people “separatists,” “bandits,” etc but they are just people who want to live in their land by their laws. They want to be friends with Russia, move around their territory, and, most importantly, speak Russian, their native language.

So, it is necessary to cover all the events that can help these people. This is the right thing to do,” Vladimir Dzhabarov said in conclusion.
