Irina Germinate: Ivan Kovalenko / “Kommersant”
Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the representative of the President of Petro Poroshenko on the peaceful settlement of the conflict in the Donbass Irina Gerashchenko was dissatisfied with the behavior of the Russian representatives during the meeting of the contact group on the peaceful settlement of the conflict. The discontent she threw in Facebook.
She stated that everything that happened at the meeting, suggests that the murder of the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk national Republic (DND) Alexander Zakharchenko is involved or the militias themselves.
Gerashchenko said that Kyiv has proposed to Moscow immediately to provide full information concerning the facts and statements appearing in media that the Russian side has sent to Donetsk “some of the investigators to investigate the assassination of the leader of the militants”. “First, this is a gross violation of the Ukrainian law on the Ukrainian territory investigations may be conducted only by the Ukrainian investigating authorities, or with the permission of the relevant structures, but we Russians such permits were not given,” — said Gerashchenko.
“Secondly, it is a violation of the Criminal code of the Russian Federation, which provides that the investigating authorities can only work on the territory of the Federation (the criminal case was instituted under article 361 of the criminal code of Russian Federation (“terrorism”) — approx. “Of the tape.ru”). And in fact, it is the recognition of the occupation of Donbass Russia, if there darting is not only the military, by the FSB, the lost ones, but the investigators,” says Gerashchenko.
In addition, she said, the Russians categorically refused to provide the OSCE and Ukraine with any information about the investigation and failed to answer the question about the fate of the former head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk national Republic (LNR) Igor Carpentry. “This demonstrates once again the Russian trace Stripping accomplices”, — said the Deputy.
On 3 September the head of the operative information and international relations of FSB Sergey Beseda reported that the DNR had sent a team of officers to assist in the investigation of the murder of the head of the Republic Alexander Zakharchenko. According to Interviews, the FSB believe that the murder of the leader of the unrecognized Republic involved the Ukrainian security services.
The head of DNR Alexander Zakharchenko was killed on 31 August in an explosion in Donetsk cafe “Separable”, where he arrived to honor the memory of deceased Russian singer Joseph Kobzon. The Republic’s authorities believe the incident a terrorist attack, which involved the Ukrainian intelligence services.
