Law enforcement officers in Ukraine are investigating 41 Russian servicemen suspected of committing war crimes in the country, reports the Interfax-Ukraine news agency.
Attorney General Iryna Venediktova said the suspects would be investigated for a range of crimes - from bombing civilian infrastructure, killing civilians, raping and robbing.
The suspects will answer before a Ukrainian court, she added.
Today, a Russian soldier accused of killing a 62-year-old unarmed civilian appeared in court in Kiev. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was brought to court for a preliminary hearing. He faces life in prison on war crimes and premeditated murder charges.
During a televised speech Friday night, Venediktova said preliminary hearings on the other two suspects would be held next week.21Media
