In April, the European Commission proposed amending the regulation on the EU Judicial Cooperation Agency (Eurojust) to give it the power to collect, preserve and share evidence of war crimes in Ukraine. The Eurojust Regulation does not allow that agency to keep such evidence on a more permanent basis or to analyze it and, if necessary, to exchange or cooperate directly with international judicial authorities. The Vice-President of the European Commission for Values ​​and Transparency, Věra Jourová, and the European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders, welcomed the European Parliament’s position and said in a joint communication that “atrocities committed in Ukraine must not go unpunished”. “There has been an unprecedented mobilization of national and international prosecutors working together to bring those crimes to justice. This is crucial evidence. Given the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, this evidence is not safe in Ukraine. We need a central backup repository where possible safely store and evaluate the evidence, “Jour and Reynders explained. 14:13 A Russian soldier who confessed to killing a civilian demands “forgiveness”. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, the first Russian soldier to stand trial in Ukraine for war crimes, asked the wife of a killed Ukrainian civilian for “forgiveness.” 13:55 Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan knows that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) wants Swedes and Finns, but he wants to use the situation as a lever for the West, thinks political scientist Josef Kraus from Masaryk University in Brno. According to him, an agreement is possible, but Erdogan wants to get the most out of this matter, Kraus said. Photo gallery (17) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Shishimarin testified in court on Thursday that he shot the man whose death he is accused of when he and other Russian soldiers retreated and wanted to join his unit.
