Prosecutor general of Ukraine Iryna Venediktova announced the visit of the former director of the Justice department's office of special investigations Eli Rosenbaum, who will lead the DOJ team investigating war crimes.
18 countries, including the United States, have already begun investigating Russian war crimes in Ukraine. Torture, rape, torture, murder, etc., were committed against Ukrainians. During the war, the Russians killed several US citizens in Ukraine, which is a good reason for the latter to open its own criminal proceedings.
"I can talk as much as I want with all journalists, with human rights activists from other countries and tell what is happening in Ukraine. But when professionals from their countries, their citizens, come and work with us, gathering evidence, taking DNA, doing various examinations, you don't have to prove something there 100 times. Their professionals do it all with us. That's why this diplomatic mission is critical here," Iryna Venediktova.
A special investigation team is also beginning to work in the United States investigating Russia's crimes against Ukraine.
"Working alongside our domestic and international partners, the Justice department will be relentless in our efforts to hold accountable every person complicit in the commission of war crimes, torture, and other grave violations during the unprovoked conflict in Ukraine," the USA attorney general Merrick Garland.
