Indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas. Deportation of Ukrainian children. Summary executions. Torture. Rape. Mass looting. In the past year and a half, Ukrainian prosecutors and investigators have worked around the clock to document more than 100,000 war crimes perpetrated by Russian troops on Ukrainian soil. The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant in March for President Vladimir Putin, but the path to justice is anything but clear.
How can Ukraine and its allies hold Russia accountable for the atrocities it has committed against Ukraine? How does the search for justice fit into President Volodymyr Zelensky’s broader peace strategy?
Please join Carnegie President Tino Cuéllar for a conversation on these topics with Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, Andriy Kostin. Ukraine's Ambassador to the United States, Oksana Markarova, and American Society of International Law (ASIL) President Gregory Shaffer will provide introductory remarks. This event is being organized in partnership with ASIL and the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States.
