The statement reads: "We are outraged by the statements of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation - they have nothing to do either with international law, reality or common sense. There is absolutely no basis for the exercise of jurisdiction by the Russian Federation in the territory of Ukraine, except prosecuting the crime of aggression committed by Russia against our country, and bringing the officials responsible for this crime to account.

"The only suspects in this investigation should be the highest political and military leadership of the Russian Federation who are responsible for deploying the Russian military in Ukraine, financing terrorism, and supplying arms and mercenaries - all of which has led to numerous victims among civilians, destruction and suffering of millions of Ukrainians."
