More than 87,000 Russian war crimes registered in Ukraine

As of the beginning of this week, more than 87,000 Russian war crimes against Ukraine, in which almost 10,000 civilians were killed, were registered in Ukraine.

"As of the beginning of this week, more than 87,000 war crimes were registered in Ukraine. These are only those registered. We understand that the actual number is bigger. Almost 10,000 civilians were killed due to registered war crimes," Denys Maslov, head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Legal Policy and Justice, said at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

He noted that 461 children were killed in Ukraine due to Russia's armed aggression and the number was growing every day.

"All this would not have happened if the initial crime had not been committed. There would have been no murders, tortures, rapes, abductions of people if it had been no initial crime – the crime of aggression, which the Russian Federation committed not on February 24, 2022, but much earlier, in 2014, and this crime had been planned even before that," the MP emphasized.

As reported, on February 24, the Russian Federation unleashed a new stage of the war against Ukraine – a full-scale invasion. Russian invaders are shelling peaceful cities and villages, massively terrorizing the civilian population in the temporarily occupied territories.
