At the beginning of May, the European Parliament denounced the use of sexual violence as a “weapon of war” in Ukraine.



A shocking image.

A woman whose bare chest was painted in the colors of the Ukrainian flag with the words "stop raping us" in English and dressed in blood-red panties burst onto the red carpet at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on Friday.

The action has not yet been claimed.

The security services quickly put her aside.

The European Parliament condemned at the beginning of May the use of sexual violence as a "weapon of war" in Ukraine, invaded by Russia, and called on the countries which welcome women fleeing this country to give them access to gynecological care, contraception and to abortion.

“Hundreds of rape cases”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denounced in mid-April "hundreds of cases of rape" observed in areas previously occupied by the Russian army, "including underage girls and very small children".
