Italy appeals to International Criminal Court about russia's atrocities in Ukraine
Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said that the atrocities committed by russian troops in Ukraine since the beginning of the invasion were obvious.
ANSA reported this.
"Italy has no details to assess whether there is genocide in Ukraine, but the atrocities are as obvious as children killed and civilians killed," Di Mayo said.
He added that Italy had already appealed to the International Criminal Court to assess the evidence of these atrocities in russia.
"I believe that putin doesn't send signals of peace when he says that they must complete the operation (in Ukraine – ed.). For this reason, we must continue sanctions (against russia – ed.)," said the Minister.
Di Maio also expressed hope that Orthodox Easter could be an opportunity to persuade russians to agree to a ceasefire.
"We are working on this because it is the only way to evacuate eastern Ukraine, where attacks are on the rise, civilians, and children away from russian bombs," he said.
