Petrenko told about the absurdity of the claims of the Russian Federation in the Hague

Russian representatives during the hearings in the International criminal court (the Hague Tribunal) made a few “mistakes”, introducing their arguments. This was told in his interview to ATR TV channel, the Minister of justice of Ukraine Pavel Petrenko, the video he posted on his page in Facebook.

According to him, the Russian side showed a weak position in the International court, presenting fake arguments.

“For example, they began to tell me that modern weapons, which came to the Donbas from Russia, allegedly found local militants and terrorists in the mines. Somehow it grows there or is going wonderful ways. Well, it’s complete nonsense! We have clearly provided evidence of movement across the border with Russia this weapon. And Russia especially never denied this fact”, – said Petrenko.

He also said violations of the rights of Crimean Tatars in Crimea.

“When we showed the folder of diplomatic notes, when we showed our statement to the European court of human rights, when we showed the public position of the Ministry and the Ministry of justice, disappeared the objectivity of their argument (that Ukraine allegedly not actively protesting against discrimination against the Tatars – ed.). They behave like bandits on the high road. Try something to take away. If it fails, escape into the bushes,” – said the Minister of justice.

He added that the statements by the representatives of Russia in the Hague was filled with lies.
