"Uspishna Varta", through the court, obliged the police to investigate the statement made by Korchinsky about the "classes" of Ukrainians

On April 1st the Goloseevsky District Court of Kiev, after the complaint of the “Uspishna Varta” human rights platform, ordered the responsible persons of the National Police Department in the Goloseevsky district of the city of Kiev to submit statements about the commission of a crime by the leader of the right-wing radical group “Bratstvo” Dmitry Korchinsky to the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations.

Earlier, the human rights activists of "Uspishna Varta" recorded that in an interview with a media outlet, Korchinsky called the residents of the occupied territories of Donbass "traitors", "collaborators", and "citizens of another class".

Pursuant to articles 214, 60 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, the human rights activists of “Uspishna Varta” appealed to the police with a request to enter information about a criminal offense committed by Dmitry Korchinsky into the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations under Article 161 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and to transfer materials for the purpose of carrying out a pre-trial investigation.

According to the requirements of Part 1 of Article 214 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, representatives of law enforcement bodies are obliged within 24 hours to submit the information about the offense set out in a statement made by the human rights activists of "Uspishna Varta" to the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations. However, they did not.

According to the lawyers of “Uspishna Varta”, after the court made the ruling, National Police officers must enter information about the offense into the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations and begin a pre-trial investigation.

Recall that on March 11th in Kiev, the leader of the “Bratstvo” Party, Dmitry Korchinsky, was interviewed by the “Magnoliya-TV” channel, which was then published on their YouTube channel under the name “Korchinsky: Ukraine will return Donbass via war! Lugansk and Donetsk will be destroyed”.

During the interview, the leader of the “Bratstvo” organisation publicly, through the media, said that the citizens of Ukraine who are residents of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions are “traitors”, “citizens of another class”, and “collaborators”.

According to the lawyers of “Uspishna Varta”, the above statements made by Dmitry Korchinsky ignore the principle of equality of man and citizen enshrined in the Constitution of Ukraine, thereby intensifying the escalation of conflict between various members of society, which falls under article 161 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

According to human rights activists, he actually committed deliberate actions aimed at inciting national hatred and hostility.
