An information system about russian war crimes "The Book of Butchers" to be launched in Ukraine
Next week, Ukraine is expected to launch a special "Book of Butchers" – an information system that will become a collection of confirmed data on criminals and war criminals in the russian army.
This was announced in a night video address by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Radio Liberty reports.
"I have repeatedly stressed that they will all be held accountable. And we are coming closer to this step by step. The creation of such an information system has been underway for some time. It will contain specific facts about specific people who are guilty of specific violent crimes against Ukrainians. And this 'Book of Butchers' is one of the foundations for holding accountable not only the immediate perpetrators of the war crimes – the soldiers of the occupying army, – but also their commanders. Those who gave the orders. Those who made everything they did in Ukraine possible. In Bucha, in Mariupol, in all our cities, in all the communities they could reach," Zelenskyy said.
On March 2, the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court announced the launch of an investigation into war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in Ukraine.
After the withdrawal of russian troops from Kyiv region, mass graves of civilians were discovered. Despite numerous testimonies, russia does not recognize its military as responsible for war crimes.
