US pledges $ 1 mn to International investigation of Russian aggression against Ukraine

The US will provide $1 million to the International Centre for the Prosecution of the Crime of Aggression Against Ukraine (ICPA), which was established in The Hague, the US Department of State reported.

The ICPA will advance investigations into Russia’s war of aggression by providing a forum for Ukraine and partner countries. The joint collaboration aims to build “the strongest possible cases for future prosecution.”

“As Russia continues to blatantly violate international law, the United States remains focused on working with Ukraine and the international community to hold accountable those responsible for international crimes committed in Ukraine,” said the statement.

According to the State Department, prosecutors from multiple legal systems are already working together at the ICPA to secure and share key evidence and pursue robust and independent investigations.

As reported earlier on 3 July, the International Center for the Prosecution of the Crime of Aggression (ICPA) officially began its work in The Hague on the Russian war crimes in its war in Ukraine.

The ICPA is a unique judicial center integrated within Eurojust, which supports investigations into the Russian crime of aggression against Ukraine. The center is a platform where independent prosecutors from different countries will swiftly exchange evidence and create an efficient prosecution strategy.
