Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday that Ukraine would launch a system to collect evidence of war crimes it says were committed during Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
Ukrainian prosecutors say they have documented more than 12,000 alleged war crimes, involving more than 600 suspects, since the Kremlin began the operation on February 24.
“Next week, a special publication will be launched under the name ‘The Book of Executions’, which is an information system for the executioners,” Zelensky said in a video speech.
To confirm data on war criminals of the Russian army.
Zelensky added that this would be a key element in his long-standing pledge to hold Russian soldiers who committed what she described as accountability.
Ukrainian authorities as murders, rape and looting.
“These are concrete facts about individuals guilty of cruel crimes against Ukrainians,” Zelensky said.
He referred to the Bucha suburb, where investigators have found what they say is evidence of mass executions.
Russia says it has done everything in its power to avoid targeting civilians in its “special military operation” in Ukraine.
Russian officials specifically denied the authenticity of the images of the scenes of events in Bucha, describing them as “fabrications” by the Ukrainian authorities after Russian forces left the town at the end of March.
