“Russia is waging a genocidal war in Ukraine, shocking the world with the magnitude of its war crimes”
Russia is waging a genocidal war in Ukraine, Prime Minister of Estonia Kaja Kallas wrote in her essay for Foreign Affairs magazine.
“It is targeting civilians, destroying civilian infrastructure, and using mass killings, torture, and rape as weapons of war. This is not an accident, but rather a feature of the Russian way of war,” wrote Kaja Kallas.
The only path to peace is to push Russia out of Ukraine, believes the Estonian PM.
“What is at stake in Ukraine is not just Ukraine’s existence but Europe’s security architecture, with its core principles of territorial integrity, sovereignty, and prohibition of the use of force. We cannot allow the fundamental principles of the UN Charter and the European security architecture to be trampled underfoot. For that reason, Ukraine must win,” wrote Kaja Kallas.
