Coalition of nations to set up tribunal for russian crimes against Ukraine
Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba has supported an international academic initiative to create a coalition of nations to set up a tribunal that would hear the case of the crime of russian aggression against Ukraine, ukrinform.net reported.
Kuleba said he did so because there is currently no clear legal instrument for Ukraine to hold russia and its leaders accountable for the crime of aggression.
The head of Ukrainian diplomacy added that the process is not an alternative to the International Criminal Court and not an alternative to the UN International Court of Justice.
“The concept was developed by the world’s leading experts in international law, which I supported on behalf of the Ukrainian state, so we will be working on it,” the Minister stressed.
