Discussion around setting up tribunal for Russia “extremely difficult” - Kuleba

Minister for Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba notes that the discussion regarding the creation of a special tribunal for the crime of Russian aggression against Ukraine is extremely difficult.

The minister spoke while answering journalists' questions ahead of the International Conference "Restoring Justice for Ukraine", which is being held in The Hague, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The discussion is extremely difficult. This is the only issue where there is no practical progress, and the debate about the parameters of the tribunal is underway. In all other matters, we have already moved to the practical phase," Kuleba noted.
