Prosecutor Karim Khan said his office is in the process of investigating to build an objective picture of what really happened in order to present these materials to an international court.
He recalled that his group has been maintaining a presence on the ground since May, and said that in the coming days a new group will go to eastern Ukraine to examine evidence in the de-occupied territories.
Karim Khan reiterated that his group had good reason to believe that war crimes had indeed been committed in Ukraine. He refuted the statements of representatives of the Russian Federation that evidence of crimes in Bucha and Borodyanka is allegedly “imitation”.
The prosecutor recalled the principles of the Nuremberg trials, in particular, that war crimes have no statute of limitations and those responsible for them must be brought to justice.
Karim Khan said that “the echo of Nuremberg that everyone should hear” is now loud in Ukraine.
