“This is a clinical diagnosis of the Russian authorities. Stalin’s justice, mixed up with Goebbels’ propaganda and confirmed and signed by Vladimir Putin,” Yatsenyuk said in Poland.

As reported, the Russian Investigative Committee chief Alexander Bastrykin accused Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk of fighting against Russian servicemen in Chechnya in the 1990s as a member of the organization known as the Ukrainian People’s Assembly-Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO).

“According to investigation findings, Arseniy Yatsenyuk was involved at least in two armed clashes that took place on Minutka Square in Grozny on December 31, 1994, and near Grozny city hospital No. 9 in February 1995, and also in the torture and executions of captured Russian army servicemen in the Oktyabrsky district of Grozny on January 7, 1995,” Bastrykin said in an interview published on the website of Rossiiskaya Gazeta on Tuesday.
