UN places blame on Ukraine's gov't for war crimes

The violations include detentions, kidnapping, tortures and killing of people, including women and children.

The authors of a 58-page document write specifically about the death of an Italian journalist and his Russian interpreter, about arrests of Russian and Ukrainian journalists by Ukrainian forces. Moreover, the commission says that the federal media "just increases tensions and provokes people by harsh rhetoric. Southeastern Ukraine faces violence and lawlessness," the report says. The UN observers claim that people, who are not taking part in military actions are often getting kidnapped and killed; Ukrainian forces shell hospitals and kindergartens. "The observers also reported on the kidnapping of pro-Russian activists. According to the report, Ukrainian forces arrested 11 people, who then went missing," KM.ru Internet portal says.

Women and children suffer as well. "Specialists of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) found out that every second child of the Donetsk and Lugansk areas suffers from depression and insomnia; the Ukrainian government hasn't been paying pensions for two months," the UN's commission says. As for Odessa's tragedy of May 2, the UN thinks that the city faced a monstrous crime; many seriously wounded people didn't turn to doctors for treatment as they were afraid of being killed by the radicals.

The UN has also criticized Kiev for not cooperating with the organization, while investigating Odessa's tragedy. Even anti-Russian deputies of the European Parliament insisted on a scrupulous investigation of the tragedy, claiming that people there were killed with the use of chemical weapons. However, the US claimed that it was against the investigation.

"Other clauses of the document are written on the subject of the Euromaidan, of the referendums in the Donetsk and Lugansk areas and the presidential election of May 25," press says. The UN's observers think that after June 7, the violation of the international regulations has aggravated.

Today, even Ukrainian media, which has recognized the punitive operation in eastern Ukraine, admits that the country faces fascism. Moreover, Human Rights Watch (HRW), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), CNN journalists and EU deputies think that the Ukrainian government is in violation of the international conventions by using forbidden cluster, phosphorous bombs and explosive bullets against people, including children.

The Ukrainian government also promises to shoot down Russians with tanks over open sights. The government also intends to send Novorossiya's citizens to concentration camps and extradite them from the country if the latter "helps the militia or are part of it."
