Ukraine war: International Criminal Court to open war crimes cases

Source: CNN

“The International Criminal Court (ICC) is planning to open two war crimes cases tied to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and issue arrest warrants against ‘several people,’ according to the New York Times (NYT) and Reuters, citing current and former officials with knowledge of the decision who were not authorized to speak publicly. According to the NYT, the cases would represent the first international charges to be brought since the start of Russia’s war and come after months of work by special ICC investigation teams. The first case the ICC is set to open is about Russia’s alleged abduction of Ukrainian children. The second is on Russia’s ‘unrelentingly’ targeting civilian infrastructure, including water supplies and gas tanks, according to the NYT.” (03/13/23)
