MFA Ukraine urges international community to immediately react to abduction of Melitopol mayor.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has urged the international community to immediately react to the abduction of Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov by Russian troops.

The relevant statement was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the ministry, the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine is accompanied by gross violations of norms and principles of international law, including international humanitarian law, war crimes and crimes against humanity, as well as other human rights violations by the Russian military.

“Among such gross violations was the abduction of Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov on March 11. Russian troops, who have been launching missile and bomb attacks on civilian facilities and infrastructure in Ukraine, including children’s hospitals and schools, over the course of two week, are cynically accusing the Mayor of ‘terrorism’,” the report states.

The abduction of the Mayor of Melitopol is classified as a war crime under the Geneva Conventions and the Additional Protocol that prohibit the taking of civilian hostages during the war.

“We call on the international community to respond immediately to the abduction of Ivan Fedorov and other civilians, and to increase pressure on Russia to end its barbaric war against the Ukrainian people,” the ministry stressed.

The fact of the abduction of the Mayor of Melitopol, along with hundreds of other facts of war crimes by Russian occupiers in Ukraine, are being carefully documented by law enforcement agencies. The perpetrators of this and other crimes will be brought to the strictest responsibility.
