We are working every day to ensure that russia is held accountable for its war crimes against our people. This was stated by Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Ihor Klymenko during a meeting with Brenda J. Hollis, Chief Prosecutor for the investigation of the situation in Ukraine, Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
According to the Interior Minister, the National Police have already opened more than 87,000 criminal cases for crimes committed by the russian military.
Most of these have been handed over to the Security Service of Ukraine, along with relevant material. However, some important cases – such as the occupiers’ atrocities against civilians in Bucha and Irpin – are still being investigated by police investigators.
“The deportation of Ukrainian children from the occupied territories, the shelling of civilian infrastructure, the destruction of the ecosystem – these and other crimes of russia are being accurately recorded,” said Ihor Klymenko.
At the end of the meeting, the Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs thanked the representatives of the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court for their fruitful cooperation: “We are united by a common goal – to achieve justice and bring all war criminals to account.”
