UK Considers Tribunal For Putin

On May 18, Liz Truss announced the cooperation of her government with the Ukrainians to attract all those responsible for the genocide of Ukrainians from February 24

In an interview with Times Radio, Liz Truss reaffirmed her determination to take legal retribution against Putin and anyone who contributed to and perpetrated the violence and killings of Ukrainians. We remind you that Great Britain is one of the countries that sent a group of experts to Ukraine to investigate the crimes of Russian invaders against Ukrainians. In particular, sexual crimes.

"We are very clear that Putin and all of those who’ve been behind the appalling war crimes that are being committed in Ukraine need to be held to account, and we’re working very closely with the international criminal court. We’ve sent support into Ukraine to help collect evidence, from witness statements to video evidence. I've talked to the Ukrainian government about this idea of ​​a tribunal. We are open to the idea of ​​a tribunal, we’re currently considering it, but what we want is the most effective way of prosecuting those people who have committed these appalling war crimes including rape, sexual violence, the indiscriminate targeting of civilians. If the tribunal will help to do that, then the UK is definitely considering supporting it," Liz Truss.

We remind you that on April 17, the general prosecutor of the Hague Court, Karim Khan, visited Bucha, and on May 18, Human Rights Watch published part of its investigation of Russia's crimes against Ukraine since the beginning of the war.
