Russian leaders must be punished for all crimes committed against the civilian population and military personnel in Ukraine, says Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Speaking with Obozrevatel, Khomchak added that he believes that it's the authorities in the Kremlin authorities who are at war with Ukraine, not the entire Russian nation.
"For all crimes against the civilian population and military personnel in Ukraine, Russia must be held accountable," Khomchak said.
"For every home destroyed, for every life of our people, broken or lost," Khomchak said.
