World leaders need to “facilitate a real legal mechanism” to hold Russian President accountable for committing “crimes against humanity,” former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said in an interview with CNN Thursday.
“Unpunished evil always returns. Putin and his military committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. The incumbent legal machinery is not capable of bringing to justice Putin and these criminals. So it is important to realize that we need urgently to facilitate a real legal mechanism,” he said, adding that sending a message to Moscow is not enough.
“We need to send a legal team to every single spot where Putin committed these crimes and actually orchestrate a legal case against Putin.”
