The data collected by the Slidstvo.Info team for their investigative film "Escaping the Russians", which tells the story of Ukrainian girls kidnapped by the occupiers, will be included in the big case against Russia.

This was announced by the head of the Department for Combating Wartime Crimes at the General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine, Yuriy Belousov, at the film's screening on March 29, Slidstvo.Info reports.

"This is a very complicated case, so we are working with the International Criminal Court. Over 20 countries in Europe and worldwide have already started their own investigations regarding Ukraine. I can guarantee that this story will be included in a large-scale genocide case," Belousov said.

According to him, the girls who are victims of these crimes will be able to bring all perpetrators to justice and receive compensation from the Russian Federation through international structures.

"The process of looking for their assets abroad and freezing them to create a special fund for compensating the affected persons is already underway. Seeing as the girls are unequivocally victims of a war crime," Belousov said.

He noted that 640 suspects who rank high in the Russian Federation have already been identified.

"We are documenting everything so that we can bring Putin and everyone involved in this to justice. There are hundreds of such people. Currently, we have a big case against Russia's top management. There are already 640 suspects. They are already being searched for property," added the representative of the Office of the GPU.

As reported by the IMI, journalists of the investigative project "Slidstvo.Info" have presented the investigative film "Escaping the Russians: the story of kidnapped Ukrainian girls' rescue." Before the full-scale war, Masha (16) and Nastya (18) lived in Kherson. After occupying their city, the Russians tricked them into being taken to the occupied Crimea, supposedly for a two-week vacation. And after two and a half weeks, they took the girls to the occupied Henichesk, where they were basically imprisoned in a cold dormitory. At the request of Slidstvo.Info, the girls were recording everything that was happening to them in what was effectively Russian captivity. Later, the journalists helped Masha and Nastya leave the occupation.
