"The most horrific" of Moscow's crimes against Ukraine is the deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia.
This was stated by the Foreign Minister of Kiev, Dmytro Kuleba, speaking at the United Nations.
"Russia has committed all kinds of crimes against Ukrainians over the past nine years, violating every part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Forced deportations, filtration camps, arbitrary detentions, enforced disappearances, torture, summary executions, sexual assaults, attacks on civilians, and it is not the complete list of crimes against humanity and war crimes committed by Moscow. But the most horrific is the forced transfer and deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia", said Kuleba who asked to " set up a special court for Russian crimes",
The same request was made by Olena Zelenska, wife of the Ukrainian president, in a video message at an event organized in Kiev by the UN, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Russian invasion.
"We have asked the UN to set up a special tribunal for Russia's crimes of aggression. We all need to ensure that this never happens again", said the first lady of Ukraine, according to whom "genocide in a nation means that no country can live in peace. When Russia strikes Ukraine, it is an attack on human rights principles. We are not only fighting for our country, but for human rights, of our people and of all of you." .
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani, who arrived in New York to participate in the UN Security Council session dedicated to the war in Ukraine, reiterated that "Italy has a strong commitment to defend Ukraine, we are working hard, not only in
supplying arms, but we want a just peace", because "a defeat of Ukraine is not a just peace, we have to defend its
independence to reach an agreement".
Tajani said that next Friday, on the sidelines of the UN meeting, he will have a bilateral meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in which he will confirm "Italian commitment to defend Ukraine's independence" and the fact that " for Italy, transatlantic relations are a priority of our foreign policy".
