Helping bring Russian war criminals to justice

The UK government has appointed a leading British lawyer as an independent adviser to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, helping Ukraine hold Russia accountable for the war crimes it is committing against innocent civilians.

  • Russia’s use of indiscriminate force against innocent civilians, in its illegal and unprovoked assault on Ukraine, amounts to war crimes for which the Putin regime must be held accountable.
  • That is why the Attorney General appointed Sir Howard Morrison QC KCMG as an Independent Adviser to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, Iryna Venediktova, providing independent and expert legal advice to Ukraine to support their investigation and prosecution of war crimes committed by Russia.
  • The international community is united in our resolve to hold Putin to account for the evil actions of his regime and we will continue to do all we can to support Ukraine’s fight for justice against Russia.
