With increasing news of atrocities against civilians in Ukraine, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and other organizations are gathering evidence to bring perpetrators to justice.

  • Marti Flacks, director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies Human Rights Initiative, said prosecutors need three things to hold perpetrators of war crimes accountable: evidence of serious international crimes, a venue with a jurisdiction to try the crimes and identification of defendants.
  • Flacks said the first two criteria have been met but the third could take years and will require “patience and persistence.”
  • She said the U.S. government has expertise, resources and information that could be highly valuable to prosecutors.
