"They indicate only that the crimes are not systematic and large-scale enough for them. Yes, there were a large number of victims, but they believe that there must be hundreds and thousands of killed people to initiate proceedings. Then it will be their jurisdiction," Horbatiuk said. In addition, according to him, another obstacle for the Hague may be unwillingness or inability of the state to investigate the crimes. "Therefore, they indicate that you [Ukraine] have enough reason and authority to complete the investigation into these crimes," Horbatiuk added. As reported, the International Criminal Court drew the preliminary conclusion that the security forces had not committed crimes against humanity during the events on Maidan in 2013-2014. This was announced by ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda in her report.
