Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia call for special tribunal to investigate Russia’s crime of aggression
Foreign ministers of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia have called on the European Union to establish a Special Tribunal to hold Russia’s political and military leadership to account for the crime of aggression against Ukraine.
The ministers issued a joint statement on the eve of the EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Luxembourg, calling on the EU to continue supporting the ongoing investigations by Ukraine.
“As Russia’s brutal assault against Ukraine continues, the EU must act to ensure that seeking justice and accountability for Russia’s horrific crimes in Ukraine is at the centre of our policy,” the statement reads.
They note that “currently, there is no international court or tribunal that could bring Russia’s top political and military leadership to account for committing the crime of aggression against Ukraine.”
