The head of the Investigative Department (SC) Russia Alexander Bastrykin tried to convince legally to complement the range of possibilities Russian investigators in the investigation of military and other crimes abroad, " affecting the desire of the Russian Federation ".
Starting in 2014, the RF IC began to actively initiate criminal proceedings in cases of crimes that occurred not on Russian territory - for example, in the Donbass. Suspects in these cases were, for example, the head of the MIA of Ukraine Arsen Avakov and the Governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region and one of the sponsors of the volunteer battalions Igor Kolomoisky.
"we believe that the regulation mechanisms in the area of extraterritorial criminal prosecution by law enforcement agencies of Russia perpetrators of overseas military and other iniquities, encroaching on the desires of the Russian Federation, need to be improved," said Bastrykin at the enlarged meeting of the Board.
according to him, the Criminal procedure rule Russia regulates only the procedure for sending an international request for legal assistance, and at the same time, in some cases it is necessary to carry out a number of procedural actions, and sometimes a preliminary hearing within another country."
"we believe it is in the national legislation in more detail to prescribe the activities of the Russian police organization in the investigation of crimes specified category ", - said the head of the IC.
