Czech MP says Russian strikes on infrastructure “war crimes,” form of “genocide”

The strikes of the Russian army on the critical infrastructure of Ukraine are war crimes and a form of genocide of the Ukrainian people.

This was stated in a comment to Guildhall by a member of the Czech Parliament, member of the Committee on Economic Issues, Tomáš Müller.

“Russian strikes on Ukraine's critical infrastructure are a form of genocide and war crimes,” the lawmaker said.

“Me in person as a Member of parliament as well as Czech government, stand with Ukraine and we will do everything what is in our power to help Ukraine win this war,” the legislator stressed.

Earlier, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, at a briefing for foreign media, called on the international community to consider attacks on the energy infrastructure of Ukraine as part of the Russian genocide of the Ukrainian people.

British lawmaker from the House of Commons Roger Gale shared the idea that the Russian strikes targeting Ukraine’s crucial infrastructure are “war crimes.”

“Russian strikes on critical infrastructure, throughout Ukraine, it is tantamount to a genocide and may yet turn into a genocide of Ukrainians,” he stressed. In turn,

Lithuanian legislator Paulius Saudargas said Lithuania was one of the first countries to recognize Russia’s war against Ukraine “as a genocide and the atrocities committed by Russian army as war crimes.”

French Member of European Parliament Stéphane Séjourné, who chairs a Renew Europe Group, says Russia’s strikes targeting Ukraine’s critical infrastructure constitute a war crime, which must be investigated, while the international community must take seriously Kyiv’s claims of an ongoing genocide of Ukrainians by the Russian forces.
