30 July 2020 - 19:34

The Ukrainian party will apply to the Republic of Belarus for the extradition of the militants of the Russian private military company of Wagner suspected of war crimes in Donbas in compliance with all envisaged procedures.

The Belarusian authorities have published a list of 33 people detained in the Republic of Belarus on July 29, 2020.

Ukraine will insist on the extradition of all persons involved in war crimes in the temporarily occupied territory and regarding whom the Security Service of Ukraine has collected sufficient evidence.

The entire world community is extremely negative about crimes against peace and security of mankind, so the actions of these people must be carefully and properly investigated, and the guilty must be punished.

Consultations with the Belarusian party are currently underway.
