PACE Voted to Establish a Tribunal for Putin and Lukashenko

Tribunal for the tyrant and self-proclaimed president planned in Hague

On January 26, PACE voted to adopt a resolution calling for the creation of an international tribunal for war criminals - president Vladimir Putin and self-proclaimed president Alexander Lukashenko. 100 deputies of the Assembly voted in favour, and 1 abstained. It is assumed that the venue of the special tribunal will be in Hague.

The resolution interprets the Russian armed attack in Ukraine as aggression, violating the UN Council's charter. At the same time, Russian attempts to annex the Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions are nothing more than an expansion of aggression against Ukraine.

Belarus is recognised as an accomplice country since the shelling of Ukraine is also carried out from the territory of Belarus.

"Its role and complicity must be condemned by the international community, and its leaders must be held accountable," PACE.

On January 19, the European Parliament also voted to create a tribunal for Russia's military-political leadership.
