More than 120,000 war crimes have been documented in Ukraine as a result of Russia's large-scale invasion of Ukraine, Prosecutor-General Andriy Kostin has said in an interview with Sky News.

"So far, we have documented more than 120,000 war crimes, including murder, rape, torture, forced deportation, ill-treatment, looting and many other crimes. It is very important that for the first time since World War Two, the international community is ready to bring to justice and punish those who committed an act of aggression and unleashed the war," Kostin said.

He also noted the importance of consolidating the civilised world to further support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.

"Ukraine's victory is in the interests of the entire civilised world: the US, the EU, the UK, Canada and many other partners and friends of Ukraine. They are interested in us winning this war, liberating our land and restoring justice. After all, this victory will be not only for the sake of Ukraine and Ukrainians. Ukraine's victory will be a very important signal to all those who dare to wage new wars and conflicts in other parts of the world," he said.
