The commission of inquiry created by the United Nations to shed light on the violence in Ukraine confirmed that, since the Russian invasion last February 24, “war crimes have been committed”. This was stated by the head of the independent commission of inquiry Erik Mose referring to the Human Rights Council. Crimes cited include rape, torture and indiscriminate attacks. In particular, Mose added, children were raped, tortured and illegally confined. The commission will therefore continue to examine forced transfers and adoptions. “We have had clear evidence of executions committed by Russian forces and which we will illustrate later,” he explained, adding that Russia refused to cooperate. “We were impressed by the large number of executions in the areas we visited,” Mose said. Investigations were conducted in the Kiev, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Sumy regions.
