“All of this (was) aimed at accelerating and energizing the global efforts towards (setting up a) tribunal on Russia’s aggression, towards new orders from the International Criminal Court for the arrest of Russian war criminals, and towards lawful and just verdicts that all Russian murderers and torturers must receive,” Zelenskyy said.

Justice for Ukraine will be restored and “there will be a new Nuremberg for the Russists (a term used in Ukraine to describe Russian fascists),” he added.

Participants of the Bucha Summit on March 31 signed the Bucha Declaration, showing their support for holding those responsible for the most serious Russian crimes in Ukraine accountable.

Russian troops entered Bucha in the first days of the full-scale war against Ukraine. After the retreat of Russian invasion forces from Kyiv Oblast in late March 2022, the world saw the results of their atrocities, which claimed the lives of hundreds of people.
