The coalition of countries for the creation of a special tribunal to prosecute the Russian Federation for its crime of aggression against Ukraine already consists of 30 countries. Greece has joined the group.
“I am happy to announce that there are already 30 countries [in the coalition]. Greece has joined this group today. There were 29 countries last weekend. I said then that I have no doubt that by the time this group meets it will have even more members, and we can already see that starting to happen. The task of the group is simple: if you join it, you agree that a separate special tribunal must be created to prosecute the Russian Federation for the crime of aggression,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba informs.
The task of the group is to develop legal ways to create a tribunal and address its legal issues, primarily the immunities of Russian president Putin and his closest entourage.
The minister added that “all G7 countries are in this group.”
As a reminder, the first meeting of the coalition representatives took place on 26 January, when 21 states took part in the event.
On 3 March, Ukraine’s top diplomat said that the coalition of countries for the creation of the special tribunal for the crime of aggression against Ukraine already consists of 29 countries, one of which is from Latin America (Guatemala).
The second meeting of the coalition is scheduled for 21-22 March in Strasbourg.
