US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed that the matter of creating an independent court or tribunal to investigate the crimes committed during the war in Ukraine is being discussed. He answered questions within the framework of the Wall Street Journal CEO Council Summit in Washington.
"Look, it’s very important that there be accountability for what’s happened," he emphasized. According to Blinken, information about war crimes, evidence of their commission is collected in “a variety of ways," and "The Ukrainians are doing it themselves."
"Look, I don’t want to prejudge where this is going, but it’s important that this information be collected," said the head of American diplomacy.
"It’s important that Ukraine be able to, as necessary, prosecute these things," but "we’re also supporting the efforts of the International Criminal Court to collect evidence and information," the US Secretary of State noted.
According to him, the matter of "some kind of independent court or tribunal being established" is being discussed.
Blinken noted that taking accountability for what happened is "very important."
