Donetsk, Apr 26 - DAN. The Ukrainian People’s Tribunal on Thursday attached several video files to the case against the Poroshenko regime, presented by the prosecutor as evidence of genocide of the Donbass population.

The Tribunal granted prosecutor Sergey Kozhemyakin’s petition to show the videos of three separate episodes.

One video showed Praviy Sector gunmen cutting the throat of a Donetsk region policeman who they believed had opposed the Poroshenko regime. They gunmen took a video of the victim’s death throes.

The second video shows the agony of the man hanged by the radicals on a tree with a sign on him reading “Muscovite must be hanged”.

The next file showed Ukrainian Nazis’ torture of a Donetsk resident in Dnepropetrovsk. Shouting “Glory to Ukraine,” they kicked him and then threw him from the Embankment into the river Dnepr. They said that the victim had betrayed the interests of the Ukrainian nation as he had sported St. George's ribbon, and that the Donetsk residents had to show their loyalty.

“We’ve attached all these videos to the case,” UPT presiding judge Elena Shishkina said.

On Thursday, the Tribunal reviewed the charges of genocide which made the sixth batch of charges against incumbent Ukrainian authorities. Under Article 442 of Ukraine’s Criminal Code, genocide and public calls for genocide are punished by ten to 15 years or life imprisonment, and six months to five years imprisonment.

Previously, the Tribunal brought charges against eight Poroshenko regime officials: Ukrainian president Petr Poroshenko, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, National Security and Defence Council Secretary Alexander Turchinov, Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, Chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko, Defence Minister Stepan Poltorak, parliament speaker Andrey Parubiy and former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The UPT set up by the initiative group of Ukrainian citizens living in Donetsk and Lugansk is reviewing cases in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation and norms of international law.*jk
