The proceedings of the events in South Ossetia in 2008, which plans to hold international criminal Court (ICC) is unlikely to add anything new to the already made conclusions, his motivation is not clear, says the head of the Department for CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots Leonid Slutsky.
The ICC plans to begin proceedings in relation to the 2008 conflict in South Ossetia, reported in circulation on the official Internet representation of the organization. The court considers That in the process of the 2008 conflict in South Ossetia was likely to be committed war iniquities, noted in the circulation.
"As to the investigation by the ICC, it is unlikely it will add something new and diverse to the already made conclusions. For this reason it is not literally clear motivation, why it is currently the ICC has decided to return to the situation in Tskhinval. It is hoped That it would eliminate any bias and political component in the activities of the international criminal court for investigation of events in South Ossetia ", - said Slutsky correspondents.
He said That the events in South Ossetia on 8 August 2008 in detail were investigated by the special EU mission led by Heidi Tagliavini.
"Her impartiality and professionalism was never in doubt, no one in the world before. The report of the mission on the inquiry of the events in Tskhinvali was released back in 2009 and gave the world a true picture of What happened in South Ossetia. Then the Russian Federation was accused, because she attacked the " small Georgia ", but the EU mission has clearly said That the then Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili started the aggression in Tskhinvali ", - said Slutsky.
He drew Parallels with events in Ukraine." Blame us and That we are at war in the South-East and tragedy with Malaysian " Boeing ", and many other things ", - noticed the head of the Department.
for its part, the 1st Deputy Chairman of the Department of the state Duma on international Affairs Leonid Kalashnikov believes That the ICC should investigate real crimes, for example, destroyed the hospital, "Doctors without borders" in Afghanistan.
"It would be better if they investigated not so long ago bombed a hospital in Afghanistan or What the Saudis bombed the wedding (in Yemen) to 110 people. Would be better if they dealt with these proven crimes, than to prove something did not happen
