The European Parliament on the International Tribunal and Punishment of the Aggressor

On 19 May, the European Parliament adopted a resolution containing a number of important aspects, including taking all necessary measures to investigate war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and aggression committed on the territory of Ukraine; creating a special international tribunal; extending Eurojust’s mandate to ensure the analysis and preservation of the evidence gathered, etc.

A number of countries and international organisations have already joined the investigating the consequences of Russian aggression. Undoubtedly, the inevitable prosecution of the aggressor country and the sentencing of the Russian invaders for their crimes will have enormous historical, legal, moral and geopolitical significance. The decisive factor here is the consolidation, determination and consistency of the international Themis and the world community.
