EU seeks to set up Russian war crimes tribunal

The European Union would work to establish a specialized court with support from the United Nations to look into and prosecute any potential war crimes committed by Russia in Ukraine, according to European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen.

“We are ready to start working with the international community to get the broadest international support possible for this specialised court,” Von Der Leyen said.

Russia, which calls its actions in Ukraine a “special military operation”, has denied targeting civilians.
