“We will see [a] new Nuremberg process probably in Bucha, probably in Irpin,” the Defence Minister said.
He added, “Or in Kharkiv or in Mariupol” – referring to Ukraine’s second city in the east of the country and the besieged city of Mariupol in the southeast.
“Both have been under devastating Russian bombardments for weeks.
“It will be a lot of Nuremberg process against military criminals who did it [killings] in our country.”
An adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has made a series serious allegations over the actions of Russian soldiers in Ukraine.
“Today’s statement will be dedicated to the world to pay attention to those war crimes, crimes against humanity that were conducted by the Russian military in Bucha, Irpin and Hostomel,” said Oleksiy Arestovych, referring to areas recently liberated from Russian control.
“These cities that have been liberated represent scenes from horror movies, post-apocalyptic scenes.
“Among the victims of the Russian crimes are raped women who [they] tried to burn, murdered local government officials, murdered children, murdered elderly people, murdered men, many of whom have their hands tied, traces of torture and shot in the back of their heads.
“It is not even worth mentioning facts like robbery, taking gold, valuables, washing machines etcetera, etcetera.”
