Three were identified as regular troops, all the indictments were sent to court. This is 'participation in terrorist organizations,' and the verdicts were passed and remain in force. This means the entire procedure within Ukrainian legislation is complete. Such documents let us apply [to international courts], and these documents have already been transferred to the international judicial institutions through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to confirm the fact of the neighboring country's participation in the hybrid war," he said.
