The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, he called the first sentence against the killers who destroyed the Malaysian Boeing in the sky over Donbass in 2014 very important.
According to him, the time will come when Igor Khirkin (Strelkov), Sergey Dubinsky and Leonid Kharchenko will start serving life sentences.
“But this decision is not just about three murderers. Russia lied a lot about this disaster, but still the key facts were established. Now the perpetrators have been convicted and a basis for convicting the guilty and a higher level has been provided. Those who bear full personal responsibility for the crime of aggression against Ukraine – the original crime that spawned all the others committed by the racists since 2014. This is something without which it is actually impossible to protect the world from the repetition of such wars as the Russian aggression against our country. When all the murderers and executioners are convicted, when their commanders and the political “roof” receive fair sentences, when Russia compensates for all the damage caused by Russian aggression, this will be a very solid basis for long-term peace.”he noted, adding that the decision in The Hague proves that every Russian war crime, every terrorist attack by them, will have its legal response.
Zelensky also called the expansion of the grain export initiative an important international result. This was possible despite various Russian manipulations.
“This is a very specific thing – what makes the world see the importance of Ukraine. Since August 1, more than 450 ships have already left the ports of Greater Odessa. The total amount of food is 11 million tons. The geography is very wide: Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Yemen, Lebanon, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Turkey, as well as the countries of the European Union. Tens of millions of people, mostly in African countries, have been saved from starvation, notably through UN Food Program deliveries from our ports.he emphasized.
We will remind you that in October of this year, Ukrainian intelligence reported that Strelkov was on the territory of Ukraine.
