Ukraine Wants Global Court to Investigate Crimes in Crimea, East

Foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin said in an interview that Ukraine wants the International Criminal Court to investigate all alleged war crimes in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, where it has been fighting pro-Russian rebels, broadening an existing probe.
Ukraine has already given the global court the authority to investigate crimes on its territory from November 21, 2013, to February 22, 2014, an earlier period leading up to the fall of Ukraine's former president Viktor Yanukovich.
Pavlo Klimkin told Reuters before meeting the court's president and prosecutor on Friday, "We are quite optimistic about more, definitely more, engagement of the ICC."
He said, an ICC referral would cover "everything under the (ICC) mandate, including crimes against humanity."
