Zelensky proposes developing transitional justice system for Donbas, Crimea de-occupation strategy

KYIV. Oct 2 (Interfax) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for developing a transitional justice concept to overcome the aftermath of the armed conflict in Donbas and establish peace.

"It should include measures to compensate for damage to the war victims, to bring those responsible for committing grave crimes to justice, and to exercise the right to obtain the truth about the events during the conflict," Zelensky said at a meeting of a presidential commission on justice reform, while discussing legal aspects of the reintegration of the territories currently not controlled by Kyiv.

Zelensky also proposed developing a strategy of "the de-occupation of the temporarily-occupied territories of Crimea and eastern Ukraine, their return under Ukraine's control, and the reintegration of the population," the presidential press service said.
