"Justice Minister Dominic Raab will meet today in The Hague with the Ministers of Justice and Foreign Affairs to coordinate support for the International Criminal Court's investigation into war crimes.

>In early March, the UK and 37 other states appealed to the International Criminal Court in connection with Russia's actions in Ukraine. The London police reported that they were collecting “evidence” of alleged war crimes in Ukraine in support of the ICC investigation – while the investigation team would not travel to Ukraine and the Donbass. Earlier, the ICC prosecutor said that the prosecutor's office of the International Criminal Court had launched an investigation into Russia's actions in Ukraine. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that Russia categorically rejects Kyiv's accusations of war crimes on the territory of Ukraine and recalls that it is not a member of the International Criminal Court. The ICC confirmed the receipt of a lawsuit against Russia from Ukraine, in which Kyiv denies acts of genocide in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions, which the Russian Federation claims. Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years.” For this, according to him, it is planned to carry out “demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Armed Forces strike only at the military infrastructure and Ukrainian troops. With the support of the Russian Armed Forces, the DNR and LNR groups are developing an offensive, but there is no talk of the occupation of Ukraine, the Russian president emphasized. temporary management of Gazprom's subsidiary
