Ukrainian Minister of Justice Denys Maliuska participated digitally and provided an update on the current situation and his views on the prosecution of core international crimes in Ukraine.
The Swedish Office of the Prosecutor-General and war crimes prosecutors from the Swedish Prosecution Authority shared their experiences from previous war crimes prosecutions, and Eurojust presented the new evidence database.

“We will demand full accountability for the horrific crimes committed in Ukraine. There will be no impunity for these,” Swedish Justice Minister Gunnar Strömmer stressed.
