U.S. will support Ukraine in war crime probe -ambassador

STORY: Russia has bombed cities to rubble and hundreds of civilian bodies have been found in towns where its forces withdrew since starting what it calls a special operation to demilitarize Ukraine on February 24. Kyiv and its Western allies say it is a baseless pretext for an unprovoked war.

“I think the efforts of the prosecutor general are really important. And I do not think they should stop or be paused just because the war continues. I think people deserve justice and they deserve justice now,” Brink said.

Ukraine, its international allies and the United Nations human rights office have been investigating potential war crimes, including sexual violence.

Moscow denies committing war crimes or targeting civilians during a war that has killed thousands and forced millions of people, mostly women and children, to flee abroad.
