Investigating Putin's suspected war crimes

Today the UK government will offer Britain’s support for investigations into suspected Russian war crimes as the Justice Secretary visits the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

  • Evidence of Russia’s use of indiscriminate force against innocent civilians, in its illegal and unprovoked assault on Ukraine, suggests a strong case that the Russian government and Russian forces have committed  war crimes for which the Putin regime must be held accountable.
  • That is why the Justice Secretary is visiting the International Criminal Court in the Hague, where he will offer the court UK technical support to help collect and preserve evidence of war crimes in Ukraine and bring those responsible to justice.
  • The international community is – and continues to be – united in our resolve to hold Putin to account for the evil actions of his regime and will not relent until Putin’s regime is made to pay the price for its actions.
