Путин должен искупить вину перед погибшими в результате уничтожения малайзийского авиалайнера над Украиной, заявил адвокат жертв катастрофы Джером Скиннер. Он пообещал идти до конца, чтобы привлечь Кремль к ответу.
"Мои клиенты ждут уже три года, господин Путин. До сих пор никто не понес никакой ответственности. Разве вы не чувствуете, что такая трагическая утрата заслуживает объяснения? Вы - единственный человек, который может исправить ситуацию", - пишет Скиннер. Он предупредил, что использует Европейский суд по правам человека (ЕСПЧ) и любые доступные инстанции, чтобы "привлечь Кремль к ответу". "Встретьтесь со мной и искупите вину перед жертвами этой трагедии", - призвал Скиннер Путина.
"Встретьтесь со мной и искупите вину перед жертвами этой трагедии", - призвал Скиннер Путина.
Заодно он написал открытое письмо с заклинаньями и проклятьями.
My clients have waited three years, Mr Putin. There is still no accountability.
Your government has provided no explanation for the missile parts and wiring among the wreckage, no explanation for the missile series or warhead numbers, no explanation for the shrapnel pattern, shape, distribution or recovery of bow tie-shaped shrapnel from the flight crews' shattered bodies.
You've failed to answer for the hundreds of photos, the videos, the satellite images and the eyewitnesses – scattered pieces of a puzzle looking more and more like Moscow's work as they come together.
You've given us no explanation for the presence of so many members of the Russian military, who published their pictures and those of their comrades on the internet as a convoy from the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade penetrated Ukraine on July 17, 2014.
Why did you locate your missile launcher in the centre of the L980 transcontinental commercial air corridor unless you were hunting an airliner? It was nowhere close to the Ukrainian air power around Donetsk.
Do you not feel that such tragic loss deserves explanation? You felt and expressed this type of loss when your Metro Jet was bombed. Do you really think that you have no responsibility to the families of the 80 children on board? What about all the others? Were they your enemy? None of them spoke Russian, none of them spoke Ukrainian. None will ever speak again. Murder demands justice.
Evil is as real as the pain of growing old. We feel its effects every day when we arise. In the night it brings a bitter twinge to the sweetest of rests. It is the uneasiness felt after a disturbing dream. It never dies. It is alive in our time.
Evil lives among my children and yours. Evil hunts down the ignorant and extinguishes the innocent daily somewhere in this world.
On July 17, 2014 it shattered 298 souls over Ukraine. Eighty of those souls were innocent children. Did you see the dolls, colouring books and toys among the blood and carnage? Did you see the photo of the hardened rebel fighter holding the soiled teddy bear like a prize from a carnival? Did you feel the presence of evil when you saw these things? I did.
My grandfather fought evil from a trench in the mud of France, half a world away and 100 years ago. My uncle fought evil which called itself the rising sun. It rose up and killed him.
My father fought evil across Europe and found evil itself at a sub-camp of Dachau near Bad Tolz in May 1945. He lost his battle and his war when he returned home to a bottle of whiskey and evil memories which he could no longer stand. Finally in July 1969 he succumbed. My brother faced evil many times in 23 years in the US Navy. I am sure you have seen evil too.
You are the head of a great nation with a powerful army that wants its empire back. I'm a lawyer from rural Ohio. I have no army, but I have nearly irrefutable evidence.
Some think MH17 must have been a terrible, inevitable mistake of war. I do not think that is the truth. The facts scream intent and motive. It was a calculated military strike as willful as the killing of one more political opponent. You stand as the only man who can set this right.
The slaughter of 298 innocents, including 80 children, will be a stain on the Russian Federation for eternity. I will stand and call out this evil before great power, because that it is my duty to seek justice. I stand against your nation for all the nations whose families suffered. But, particularly on behalf of the Malaysian, Australian, New Zealander and Dutch families that I represent.
I will use the European Court of Human Rights and every other avenue available to bring the Kremlin to accountability. My grandfather, my father, my uncle and my brother would approve. Mr Putin, evil can atone. Your Christian faith should teach you that forgiveness must be sought by the words and deeds of the wrongful actor. The violator can be forgiven, even for death.
I am a believer in Christ. I try to think, act and interact with others with a Christ consciousness. You are big Mr Putin, I am small, but God remains bigger than us all. He will be the ultimate arbiter. Still, you and Russia have a responsibility to reach out and take action in this life.
Meet me and finally make amends for the victims of this tragedy. You may communicate with me through your embassy contacting the US Department of State.
В котором признался в потомственном алкгоголизме.
Ничего нового в нем нет -кроме стандартного набора проклятий в адрес Путина и РФ. какие то фотографии каких то военнослужащих 53 бригады и пр.
И предложение вызвать его через госдепартамент. прямо как черта.
