Zelensky: We will take all Russian war criminals to tribunal

President Volodymyr Zelensky underscores that the Russian military will be inevitably brought to justice for war crimes in Ukraine.

“Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court Karim Khan visited Bucha. It is right that a group of forensic experts from the International Criminal Court will start working in the city. Responsibility for the Russian military for war crimes is inevitable. We will drag them all to the tribunal. And not only for what was done in Bucha,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said in his latest address, Ukrinform reports.

As reported, Prosecutor General of Ukraine Iryna Venediktova and ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan made a joint working trip to Bucha in Kyiv region, where the bodies of killed civilians are being exhumed from the second mass grave.
