Ukraine's PM, President's Office head, President of Latvia open exhibition Russian War Crimes in New York

KYIV. Sept 22 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, Head of the President’s Office Andriy Yermak and President of Latvia Egils Levits have opened the Russian War Crimes exhibition in New York.

"The exhibition Russian War Crimes was opened in New York with the President of Latvia, Egils Levits, and the Head of the President’s Office, Andriy Yermak. Approximately 40,000 war crimes by Russia – this is a preliminary and far from complete result of the calculations. Ukraine will purposefully go towards the goal – punishment of war criminals, no matter how high positions they hold," Shmyhal wrote on his Telegram channel on Wednesday evening.

The Prime Minister noted that a complex system of responsibility for violation of international law, the Special International Tribunal, was proposed to punish war crimes.

"The Special Tribunal will become an effective addition to the work of the International Criminal Court. It is within its competence to investigate the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. We count on broad international support," Shmyhal stressed.
