A special international tribunal , which will consider the crimes committed by the Russian military and political leadership in Ukraine, will start working this year.

 Andrey Smirnov, deputy head of the President’s Office, said   this in  an interview with Forbes

In the OP, several tracks are being discussed – the delegation of a prosecutor for Ukraine, who would begin to establish the pre-launch work of this tribunal, agree on the location of the tribunal, which countries will enter it and whom to delegate. 

“The international tribunal will be based in Europe. Initially, it was planned that the office would be in Kyiv. The Civil Court of Cassation even volunteered to provide premises for this, it is symbolic that it is located opposite the Russian embassy,” Smirnov says. 

But the decision was changed so that the confidence in this body was absolute on the part of all countries of the civilized world. “The location of the tribunal on the territory of the victim country can be perceived ambiguously,” says Smirnov. 

The number of countries that will join the Tribunal is not yet known. The European Parliament has already recognized the need to create a Special International Tribunal and called for technical and financial support for this. 

The tribunal’s mandate will be to investigate the crime of aggression against Ukraine. At the very least, the military and political leadership of the Russian Federation will be restricted to travel abroad, they will not have peace in the civilized world, Smirnov says. 

As you know, on May 19, the European Parliament supported the creation of a special international tribunal to investigate war crimes by Russia and its allies against Ukraine. The creation of the body was also supported by PACE. 

The Tribunal aims to bring Russian President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle to justice.

  1. “A special international tribunal , which will consider the crimes committed by the Russian military and political leadership in Ukraine, will start working this year.”

    They better hurry so that the trials can begin before the ruskie criminals all die of natural deaths.
    We remember the crime that involved the downing of MH-17. How many years ago was it? What sort of justice has been served? It’s been almost exactly 8 years ago and NOTHING has come of it.
