    Hi, thanks for the post. I am a strong supporter of Donbass. Russia is making a mistake to prosecute for war crimes at this at this time. The Minsk agreements provide for universal amnesty. Amnesty most of all protects the NAF militias and DPR/LPR leadership. Since the West has dominant political power, it is the DPR/LPR that are most vulnerable to indictment.. Once prosecutions begin on either side, they can escalate on both sides. Russia would be better off to forget prosecution threats and abide by Minsk, unless Minsk completely fails.
