Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has urged EU High Representative for Foreign Policy Josep Borrell not only to focus on Russia’s activities, but also to pay attention to the “crimes” committed by the Ukrainian side since 2014.

Peskov has thus reacted to statements by Borrell in which he pointed to forming an independent tribunal aimed at holding Russia accountable for its actions in Ukraine, a position advocated from Kiev, TASS news agency reports.

“In general, we would like to recommend that European diplomats pay attention from 2014 to the crimes of the Ukrainian regime, which can and should become a pretext for the very tribunal they are talking about,” the Kremlin spokesman said.

In addition, Peskov has criticized Borrel for “never” speaking out on Ukraine’s alleged crimes and on “the fate of innocent civilians and murdered children. “It was never of interest to Mr. Borrell,” he said.

Finally, from Moscow the top diplomatic representative of the European Union has been reminded that “he does not have the proper authority” to launch such statements, which they consider as “inadmissible.”
