Ukraine swiftly opened war crimes trials - in wartime -, without waiting for the outcome of proceedings in international and regional courts. On this map, we list the war crimes trials completed to date in 23 cities against 172 military personnel. Most of them are being tried in absentia. So far, 11 Russian soldiers, present at their trial, have been tried and sentenced in Ukraine. This map does not include the numerous trials for crimes against national security.
This Justice Info map of domestic war crimes trials, produced from public data in court registers consulted by our correspondent Iryna Salii, shows the visible result so far of multiple investigations launched by Ukrainian prosecutors throughout the country: those cases that have already reach trial stage.
As of 15 June 2023, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine had officially registered 93,564 war crimes and crimes of aggression involving 671 military or political representatives of the Russian Federation.
