Lukashenko's war crimes in focus at ICC Assembly in New York

The Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute has been taking place in New York from December 4th to December 14th. This event serves as a crucial platform for communication between the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the states parties to the Rome Statute. During this gathering, representatives of states bring attention to situations involving the most serious international crimes.

This annual event also includes the election of six new judges for the International Criminal Court, who will serve for the next nine years. Additionally, budget issues and reports on the court's activities are discussed.

Several state representatives, in their speeches, have positively acknowledged the ICC's decisive actions in prosecuting those responsible for the deportation of Ukrainian children. There is hope that the investigation into crimes against Ukrainian children will continue.

Thanks to the efforts of the NAM team, the issue of war crimes against children committed by Lukashenko is receiving significant attention during the ongoing ICC Assembly meeting.

Furthermore, among ICC representatives and members of the expert community, there is no doubt that Lukashenko's actions towards Ukraine and the Belarusian people constitute crimes of aggression and crimes against humanity. However, the implementation of existing mechanisms requires the political will of states.

In this regard, Pavel Latushka and the NAM team will continue to actively advocate for holding Lukashenko accountable for the crimes he has committed.
