Summary:

  • Investigators desire changes in the way war crimes are looked at and prosecuted.

  • Nychka Lishchynska is to blame.

  • A fundamental shift in how the world responds to war atrocities is required, say groups involved in documenting them, as plans to establish an international centre in The Hague to try war crimes committed in Ukraine are unveiled.

  • For example, satellite images or other data can help identify which soldiers were in a specific spot at a particular time when a war crime allegedly occurred, according to Ajvazovska. “

  • They are confident that these will eventually help bring even those at the highest levels of the Russian leadership to trial, along with a continued focus on the conflict on the part of the international community and a strong desire on the part of Ukrainians themselves to see accountability for the crimes committed against them.

A fundamental shift in how the world responds to war atrocities is required, say groups involved in documenting them, as plans to establish an international centre in The Hague to try war crimes committed in Ukraine are unveiled.

Allegations of tens of thousands of war crimes committed by invading forces have been made since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine almost a year ago.

However, despite the unprecedented global support for efforts to bring those responsible for these alleged crimes to justice, the numerous civil society organisations working to document them claim that this war, more than any other, has highlighted the need to change how both individual states and international organisations approach war crimes.

The CEO of the Ukrainian NGO Truth Hounds, which is recording war crimes in Ukraine, Roman Avramenko, stated that “the entire world and all its nations realise that there needs to be a rapid global response to atrocities, that all nations have to establish ways of documenting war crimes and bringing them and those who committed them to light.”

“What we are currently witnessing is the outcome of inaction. Since this conversation about war crimes began eight years ago, it has been ongoing. He told IPS that when crimes go uninvestigated and no one is held accountable, there would be more horrors and violence.

There have been numerous claims of war crimes committed by Russian troops since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine; earlier this month, Ukrainian officials estimated more than 65,000 Russian war crimes had been recorded since the assault’s inception.

Rape, mass murder, torture, kidnapping, forced deportations, and indiscriminate attacks on population and infrastructure are only a few of the claimed atrocities.
