The conflict in eastern Ukraine killed more than 9,300 people in two years
The International Criminal Court should investigate Russian war crimes in eastern Ukraine and bring the perpetrators to justice.
This was stated by the Ukrainian delegation to the United Nations during the 70th session of the General Assembly, the Ukrainian news outlet 5.ua reports.
Diplomats said that since February 2014 Ukraine became the victim of military aggression - both from Russia and from militants and terrorists who are backed by the Russian government.
In early September, 2015, Ukraine filed a declaration in accordance with the Rome Statute - the founding document of the International Criminal Court - which outlined the crimes against humanity and war crimes committed by Kremlin officials and leaders of Lugansk and Donetsk militants.
It is the International Criminal Court that should make sure those guilty of Russian aggression are punished as well as all victims get compensation.
