MP of the faction “European solidarity”, the former commander of the Airborne troops of the Armed forces of Ukraine Mikhail Zabrodsky stated about the inadmissibility of creating in Ukraine a separate government body whose task will be to investigate crimes committed during the Russian military aggression.
“Any special body created indirectly provides for a special status. The question arises: why do people who have taken up arms and resisted by armed force the lawful authority must be a special body? I can’t understand this and see this as just pandering to the aggressor,” – said Makarov on Thursday at a joint press conference on the priorities of the meeting in the Normandy format.
Earlier media published “the concept of transitional justice”, developed by human rights defenders and the authorities. The discussion document was held on 20 November with the participation of the attorney General of Ruslan Riaboshapka, his Deputy Gunduz Mammadov and all six members of the working group on reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories, which is part of the Commission on legal reforms under the President of Ukraine; it is expected that the concept will be in the future approved by the decree of the President.
The concept proposes the punishment of criminals, lustration of the leaders of the occupation administrations, the return of property, payment of compensation and restore the rights of victims, the establishment of a special independent body “to restore the truth.”
