The full-scale war in Ukraine has already led to an environmental disaster: the flooding of the left bank of Dnipro as a result of Russia blowing up the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant, radiation in the Red Forest near the Chornobyl NPP raised into the air by Russian troops, mined fields and forests burned to ashes, destroyed ecosystems due to constant shelling, polluted water reservoirs — all of these are Russia’s crimes against the environment. However, the Russian ecocide is a problem not only for Ukraine, because it affects the environment of the whole planet. Nevertheless, the concept of an ecocide has still not been included in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which would allow Ukraine to categorise these crimes properly.

A fair mechanism of punishment for international environmental crimes and protection of the environment around the world is a path towards a better world for future generations. But how do we find this path?
