Ukraine vows to punish Russia for war crimes in military tribunal after targeting of civilians

 

Ukranian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has accused Russia of war crimes after targeting civilian targets and said Moscow will have to face a “military tribunal.”

 

During a Saturday news conference, Shmyhal said Russia shelled kindergartens, residential blocks and “buses with children.”

 

 

For these crimes, the Russian command will surely see military tribunal. The enemy will surely be punished for killing Ukrainian children. Ukraine will not forgive them for this,” Shmyhal said.

The prime minister said Russia was deliberately attacking civilian infrastructure because it is “failing” in its offensive.

 

“The Russian government doesn’t understand they are not fighting only with the government. In fact, they are fighting against the entire Ukranian people,” he said.

 

 

Russia said its forces are only targeting military installations and are not striking residential areas.

 

After a Saturday government meeting, Shmyhal announced Ukraine is temporarily closing its borders with Belarus and Russia except for Ukranian citizens abroad, whom he urged to join the fight.

“Please do come back and do prove you are on the side of the light. And I’m addressing all civilized countries: On whose side are you on?” Shmyhal asked. “Are you on the side of the killers of children, or are you on the side of the great European people who are defending their country and they’re defending their freedom from the aggression?”
