Kuleba: 30 countries support establishing tribunal for Russia

It's not just about punishing Putin, but also the Minister of Defence and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Kuleba: 30 countries support establishing tribunal for Russia

The establishment of an international tribunal for Russian President Vladimir Putin and the entire military and political leadership of the Russian Federation was supported by 30 countries, said Dmytro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, during the telethon.

"I am pleased to announce that the number of countries supporting a special tribunal for Russia has reached 30. Today, Greece has joined this group. At the weekend, there were 29 countries," he said.

Kuleba explained that each of these countries agrees to establish a tribunal to try the Kremlin's top officials for the war in Ukraine.

"And this is Putin and his inner circle: Shoigu, Lavrov, and the whole criminal gang," he said.

Kuleba hopes that at the next meeting, representatives of all 30 countries will make progress on the issue of immunity for Putin.

"In international law, there are three people who enjoy complete immunity from any prosecution. These are the president, the prime minister and the foreign minister. Our goal is to resolve this immunity issue, but it is a sophisticated, neurosurgical operation," Kuleba said.

The first meeting of the coalition to create a special tribunal for Russia took place on 26 January. It was attended by 21 states. It has now been agreed to hold the second meeting to establish the special tribunal on 21-22 March in Strasbourg.
