Putin may be convicted of crimes against humanity committed by the Russian military in Ukraine on his orders. So says a veteran of justice, 101-year-old Benjamin Ferenc, who worked as a prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials over the leaders of Nazi Germany.
“The crimes that Russia is now committing against Ukraine are a disgrace to human society, the perpetrators must be held accountable for aggression, crimes against humanity and murders,” Ferenc said.
Putin could be imprisoned like Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, who was convicted of genocide.
“It’s very realistic. All you need is the determination to do it, because they don’t live on the moon. I want to see Putin behind bars, it’s possible,” Ferenc added.
In his opinion, Western countries hoped that the threat of the Nuremberg Trials would deter the Russian military from committing crimes. But now it is clear that this precedent does not apply to the occupiers.
Recall that the International Criminal Court in The Hague has already begun an investigation into Russia’s war crimes in Ukraine.
Just think, a single small hunk of fast-travelling lead, slamming into his head could bring so much justice! AND end so much suffering!
