Ukraine Wants ‘War Crimes Tribunal’ As Condition For Russia ‘Peace’ Summit
Ukraine wants a "peace" summit to end the war with Russia but won't talk directly to its adversary until Russia has faced a "war crimes tribunal" before an international court, foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba says.
The summit would ideally take place by the end of February at the United Nations “because this is not about making a favor to a certain country” but “bringing everyone on board,” Kuleba told the Associated Press.
A Kremlin spokesperson responded that Russia has “never followed conditions set by others,” seeming to balk at the matter being put before world leaders instead of a one-on-one summit with Ukraine.
The two countries have blames each other for resisting talks to end the war.
