Russia has been accused of staging an alleged drone attack on the Kremlin that it blamed on Ukraine (and the U.S., according to the latest comments from the Kremlin Thursday) with analysts saying it’s likely Moscow carried out the incident itself.
Ukraine denied any involvement in the incident that purportedly involved two drones, saying it more likely signaled that Russia was planning a large-scale terrorist attack against Ukraine in the coming days.
During a visit to the Netherlands, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said his Russian counterpart President Putin must be brought to justice for his war in Ukraine, calling for the creation of a war crimes tribunal separate to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Russian President Vladimir Putin must be brought to justice for his war in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Thursday in The Hague, calling for the creation of a war crimes tribunal separate to the International Criminal Court.
“The aggressor must feel the full power of justice. This is our historical responsibility,” Zelenskyy said in a speech.
“Only one institution is capable of responding to the original crime, the crime of aggression: a tribunal. Not some compromise that will allow politicians to say that the case is allegedly done, but a true, really true, full-fledged tribunal.”
Mykhailo Podolyak, Zelensky’s senior aide, requested that the U.S. and other allies outline the consequences of Russia using nuclear warfare in an interview with the presidential administration today in Kyiv.
“The other nuclear states need to say very firmly that as soon as Russia even thinks of carrying out nuclear strikes on foreign territory—in this case the territory of Ukraine—there will be swift retaliatory nuclear strikes to destroy the nuclear launch sites in Russia,” Podolyak was quoted by The Guardian.
