The Russian government does Not explain the message of the international criminal court (ICC) investigation into the conflict in South Ossetia in 2008.
"Not as long as to answer the question," he told reporters on Thursday the President's press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, answering the question whether Moscow was somehow to participate in this investigation.
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.
The Rome Statute, which entered into force 2002, is the basis of the ICC's work. The Russian Federation international Treaty signed in 2000, but until now Not ratified. So, the Russian Federation, as well as the USA, China, Ukraine and several other countries, the jurisdiction of international justice does Not apply. The Georgian Parliament ratified the Rome Statute in 2003, for this reason, the iniquity committed by its citizens or on its territory are under the jurisdiction of the ICC. The head of the Investigative Department Alexander Bastrykin have said before, that the ICC has asked the Russian Federation the investigation of war crimes in South Ossetia in 2008. According to head SK, before any International court is Not concerned with the investigation, although the Russian Federation, which qualifies the actions of the Georgian military as an international lawlessness and war, first tried to make the ICC in these materials.
