“It is clear that when it comes to preventing impunity for the most serious crimes committed during this war, the International Criminal Court remains the key international actor to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators. For this reason that, since the beginning of Russia’s war of aggression, the European Commission has provided over EUR 10 million in support of the ICC’s work on Ukraine,” said the European Commissioner for Justice.
In addition, the European Commission, the Council of the EU and the Member States are discussing joint coordination and further actions in connection with the requested support by the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
“A financing decision was recently adopted on to continue an EU support project to the ICC, which is scheduled for 2025 and will encompass an amount of EUR 3 million,” added Didier Reynders.
