The Chief Ranker of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Haag has spoken out against the establishment of a special tribunal to punish Russian crimes in Ukraine. This could “undermine” the work of the ICC, warned Chefankläger Karim Khan in the Hague on Monday. "We should avoid fragmentation and instead work on the merger."

Finnish leader says the brutal truth is Ukraine shows Europe isn't 'strong enough' without the US

  Finnish leader says the brutal truth is Ukraine shows Europe isn't 'strong enough' without the US "The US has given a lot of weapons, a lot of financial aid, a lot of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and Europe isn't strong enough yet," Marin said.Among these weapons are shoulder-launched anti-tank weapons, unmanned combat aerial vehicles, and mobile rocket launchers — game-changing systems that have helped Ukraine derail Russian President Vladimir Putin's campaign, whether it was defending Kyiv in the early spring or keeping Russian forces at bay in eastern Ukraine over the summer.

He asked the international community to support and finance the ITGH in his investigation. "We must not fail. We need the means to fulfill our task. We don't have these funds, ”said Khan.

Since Russia does not recognize the ICC, the Court can examine alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Ukraine. However, he cannot act against Moscow because of the crime of aggression.

Therefore, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed a special tribunal last week to punish “crimes in Russia” in Ukraine. The EU also justified the step by the fact that head of state like the Russian President Vladimir Putin would enjoy immunity before law enforcement by the ICC.

Neither Russia nor Ukraine can control the air over Ukrainian battlefields, but their aircraft are still finding ways to operate

  Neither Russia nor Ukraine can control the air over Ukrainian battlefields, but their aircraft are still finding ways to operate "You have to adjust quickly to the realities of the operational environment. Otherwise you won't survive for long," a naval aviator told Insider.On paper, Russia had a highly competent air force composed of hundreds of fourth-generation fighter jets as well as attack and transport helicopters. But Russian aircraft have never able to achieve air superiority over Ukraine.

Khan now contradicted this: The ICCsGH member states could find ways to enable the court to persecute a third country. The EU also "misrepresented" the law on immunity.

The ISTGH had initiated investigations into alleged war crimes shortly after the Russian invasion of the Russian invasion in Ukraine. However, the Criminal Court also explained that the Ukraine puts a value on trial to Ukraine. The ICC is the highest international court and has been pursuing particularly serious offenses such as war crimes since 2002.

After the withdrawal of Russian soldiers from parts of Ukraine, mass graves and references to torture and other atrocities were found . Most recently, Russia bombed important infrastructure in Ukrainian cities, which led to massive failures in electricity, water and heat supply.
