More than 150 people attended the sixth online lecture in the series on transitional justice and international criminal and humanitarian law. At the webinar on 5 May, the participants learned from the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Anton Korynevych, the concept of an international crime and the category of international crimes (crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, crime of aggression) and how international crimes are reflected in the legislation of Ukraine.
For more than six years, international humanitarian law (IHL) and international criminal law are relevant to the millions of citizens and citizens of Ukraine who have been victims of armed aggression by Russia, because IHL is a set of international legal norms and principles, regulating the protection of victims of war, as well as restricting the methods and means of warfare, and international criminal law provides for individual criminal responsibility for the commission of serious international crimes “Anton Korynevych participated in a webinar on international crimes”
