Grave sites prompt calls for a tribunal over Russian killings

The European Union presidency has called for an international tribunal over the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The call from the Czech Republic, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the bloc, came after the discovery of hundreds of graves in the city of Ukraine. A town was recently liberated by the Ukrainian troops. 

Most of them were women and children, as reported by the civilians. On this, the Czech foreign minister, Jan Lipovsky, said that we stand for the punishment of all war criminals. Ukraine said that it believes war crimes have been committed in the city, where about 59 bodies have been exhumed so far. There were more expected from the graves in a forest at the edge of the city. 

These kinds of attacks in the 21st century against the civilian population are unthinkable and abhorrent. We must not overlook it. We also stand for the punishment of all war criminals. They call for the speedy establishment of a special international tribunal that will prosecute the crime of aggression. These are the words of Mr. Lipavsky. 

When Ukraine’s President addressed the nation on Saturday evening, he said that investigators had discovered some new evidence of the torture used against the people buried in the Izyum in the Kharkiv region. He also added that more than ten torture chambers have been founded in the liberated areas of the Kharkiv region and in other regions as well.
