Prosecutor General of Ukraine Andriy Kostin said that more than 40 countries have already joined the group working on creating a tribunal for Russia

Prosecutor General's Office reported the information. 

Kostin emphasized a comprehensive approach to justice restoration, describing it as the "Network of Comprehensive Responsibility." This network involves addressing various crimes, including war crimes, crimes against humanity, aggression, genocide, and compensating for damage to Ukraine and its victims.

He highlighted the need for a dedicated tribunal on the crime of aggression to finalize the formation of this network. Currently, the group supporting the tribunal's creation comprises over 40 countries, marking a doubling of the participant count over the past year.

War crimes evidence involving Russia

On September 18, the International Court of Justice in The Hague considered the second case in Ukraine's lawsuit against Russia "Concerning allegations of genocide under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide". Then Russia repeated the accusation that the "Russophobic and neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv" is using the 1948 Genocide Convention, to which both countries are parties, as a pretext to "drag" the case to court.

Anton Korynevych, the ambassador on special assignment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded to Russia's accusations during a speech at the UN International Court of Justice.

On September 20, over a dozen European countries, along with Australia and Canada, requested the International Court of Justice to determine jurisdiction in Ukraine's genocide case against Russia.

Addressing the UN Security Council, Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed the need to reform the organization, advocating for a mechanism to overcome the veto, which he believes makes the UN ineffective. Zelenskyy also emphasized the importance of allowing all nations to be represented.

On September 23, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claimed at the UN that Russian terrorists are ready for negotiations regarding Ukraine.
