Ukraine: One Year of Russian Crimes
Russia launched a full scale military invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
One year ago, Russia launched a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine.
In that time, Russian forces have carried out numerous attacks that violate the laws of war, which caused untold numbers of civilian deaths and injuries.
In areas Russian forces occupied, they have tortured, summarily executed, and raped Ukrainian civilians.
They have repeatedly bombed power infrastructure disrupting gas, electricity, and water supplies critical for civilians.
They have also looted museums, pillaging valuable cultural artifacts.
Russian and apparently Ukrainian forces have both used banned antipersonnel landmines.
Many of the abuses and violations by Russian forces could constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity.
These atrocities should stop, and those responsible brought to justice.
