EU proposes to set up a specialized court to probe Russian crimes in Ukraine
The European Union will try to set up a specialized court that would investigate and prosecute Russian crimes committed on the territory of Ukraine, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said in a video address.
“Russia must pay for its horrific crimes, including for its crime of aggression against a sovereign state. And this is why while continuing to support the International Criminal Court (ICC), we are proposing to set up a specialized court, backed by the United Nations, to investigate and prosecute Russia’s crime of aggression,” von der Leyen stated.
“We are ready to start working with the international community to get the broadest international support possible for this specialized court,” she said.
