During Russia’s full-scale invasion, Ukraine has documented tens of thousands of war crimes. But will all the evidence be used in International Criminal Court cases? The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the parliaments of several other countries have already recognized Russia’s actions against Ukrainians as a genocide. And Ukrainian and international human rights organisations define the Russian aggression as a genocide more and more often. What is genocide? What characteristics does it have? What long-term consequences will the recognition and proof of facts of genocide in Russia’s actions have for Russia?

It is time to give a legal definition to the Russian aggression, because it is the first step towards achieving justice.
