The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia has put on the wanted list three Ukrainian generals on charges of participating in the shelling that led to the death and injury of more than a hundred people on the territory of Donbass. These data follow from the official database of the department.
Among the persons put on the wanted list is the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yevhen Moisyuk. However, the specific criminal article under which he is wanted is not specified.
At the end of July, charges were brought against the former commander of the operational-tactical group «Vostok» Igor Palagnyuk, as well as the former commander of the airborne assault troops of Ukraine Yevhen Moisyuk, and the head of the joint operational headquarters in the zone of operations of the eastern section (OOS) Andrei Kovalchuk. In the period from 2016 to 2019, all of them were in the command of units that shelled settlements of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). More than a hundred people became victims of the attacks.
On May 31, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation also put on the wanted list three generals of Ukraine: Colonel-General Igor Kolesnik and two Lieutenant-Generals Alexander Lokota and Andrei Grishchenko. They were all charged according to the Criminal Code, while the Investigative Committee pointed to the participation of these persons in military operations in the Donbas, as a result of which more than 500 civilians were killed and about a thousand people were injured.
In addition, at the end of May, the Russian department launched a search for the Commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny and Commander of the ground forces of Ukraine Alexander Syrsky. A criminal case is being conducted against them under article 356 of the Criminal Code related to the use of prohibited methods of warfare.
By the way, according to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky will repeat the fate of former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili. Speaking about the events in South Ossetia, Volodin stressed that history repeats itself, but now with Zelensky.
