ICC to investigate alleged war crimes in Ukraine

After the Russian invasion, the International Criminal Court will join the European Union's investigation of alleged war crimes in Ukraine.

The International Criminal Court ICC will investigate alleged war crimes in Ukraine after Russian invasion. The European Union's agency for criminal justice, Eurojust, made an announcement on Monday. The international war crimes tribunal's first-ever participation in an investigative team was signed by ICC prosecutor Karim Khan and the prosecutors general of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine, according to Eurojust. There have been many alleged war crimes in Ukraine, most notably in the town of Bucha, where bodies of civilians were found after Russia's retreat. It is close to midnight in Ukraine. Russia is trying to pressure a steel plant in the city of Mariupol, while the United States has pledged more aid to Ukraine.
