However, the leader of the Russian-backed puppet "state" hasn't specified which international courts could accept their appeal

Denis Pushylin, one of the leaders of the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR"), has claimed "DPR" authorities are collecting material for lawsuits against Ukraine, Russian news agency Interfax reports.

The legal actions will allegedly relate to "war crimes" performed by Ukraine's Armed Forces in Donbas.

"To say that the war is over is too early. However, we are already collecting materials for lawsuits. At the end of any war, there is a moment when all war crimes are disclosed and those guilty are punished", Denis Pushylin said.

On answering the question if there is going to be a trial on the materials they gather, Pushylin declared "we have alot of confidence the time for a proper revenge will come" without explaining what international court could hear the "case" of the self-proclaimed "republic".
