A court in Kiev after almost two years of negotiation, refused to recognize the existence of armed aggression of Russia against Ukraine. The investigation began in August 2014 at the request of the head of the project “Open court” Stanislaus Batrina.

The organization argues that the Complainant and the volunteers collected more than a thousand official documents of authorities, which referred to “the invasion/attack of Russian armed forces on the territory of Ukraine”, and also about “occupation and annexation” of the territory, the blockade of ports and airspace, the sending of armed groups and the murder of citizens of Ukraine.
The Shevchenkovsky district court of Kiev refused to recognize the charges. In a statement on the website of the “Open court” noted that prosecutors did not oppose his application, however, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the person of its representative insisted on the refusal to establish the fact of “armed aggression”.
Batrin considered that the court decision is political and intends to appeal. “We are consistent, go ahead and appeal against the decision in the appeal, but because of the spinelessness of the courts and the Executive branch today, Russia will inform all countries of the world, that even the Ukrainian court does not recognize the aggression of Russia”, – said the head of the project.
The head of the “Open court” for the first time raised the issue of the recognition of “Russian aggression” against Ukraine on August 29, 2014. The trial court twice rejected the lawsuit, but a defender was able to contest it on appeal. Then the judge hearing the case, recused himself, and he had to find a replacement, said RIA Novosti.Related posts:
