MFA Ukraine reminds Lavrov about international tribunal following latest statement

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has warned Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s top diplomat, about the International Tribunal after his statement about why the Russian Federation is targeting Ukrainian infrastructure in its missile strikes.

That’s according to MFA spokesman Oleg Nikolenko, who took to Facebook to respond, Ukrinform reports.

"I wonder if Lavrov will deny his participation in the crimes of Putin's regime at the International Tribunal, or will he immediately admit guilt so as not to suffer for a long time?" Nikolenko wrote.

Earlier today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Sergei Lavrov, said that Russia is attacking the infrastructure that "helps kill Russians."

"So, we are decommissioning (disabling - ed.) energy facilities that allow you (Western nations) to pump Ukraine with deadly weapons to kill Russians," Russian media quoted Lavrov as saying.
