The Third Edition of the GAN Report on the Russian war crimes against Ukraine (February 2022 — June 2023) has been published

The Global Accountability Network’s Ukraine Accountability Project (GAN UAP) has published an updated Report on war crimes, crimes against humanity and crime of aggression committed by the Russian Federation against Ukraine (Third Edition). The report was prepared with the assistance of the Ukrainian Bar Association.

The document covers war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Russian invaders in Ukraine from February 24, 2022 to June 14, 2023. The basis of this report is founded upon open-source research and evidence collection by an inter-collegiate investigative team from across the US, collecting reports, photographic, and video evidence of crimes perpetrated in Ukraine.

The document provides the reader with a brief, but important, historical overview of Ukraine and its relationship with Russia. In addition, the report describes international legal mechanisms of accountability, identify individuals most responsible for the commission of crimes in Ukraine, and provide a series of representative charges to be used in an international criminal tribunal.

The report reiterates its call upon the international community to not remain silent or idle, but to respond to the call for justice and accountability by utilizing the available international accountability mechanisms, as the Russian Federation is openly committing crimes of aggression, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

The report was worked on by: Kelly Adams, Mia Bonardi, Victor Andrei Ivan, Phoebe Juel, Alexandra Lane, Bryan Sicard, Alan F. Dowling, Alexa Thein, Anchal Saxena, Andrina A. Kirst, Annika M.
