Sir Keir urged Boris Johnson to get behind a special tribunal to prosecute Putin and his associates for the crime of aggression, based on the tribunal set up to prosecute Nazi war crimes at Nuremberg after World War II.
“Vladimir Putin and his criminal cronies must be held to account for their illegal invasion of Ukraine,” said Sir Keir on Monday.
The Labour leader added: “The UK government must do all it can to ensure the creation of a special tribunal to investigate the crime of aggression.
“The Ukrainian people deserve justice as well as our continued military, economic, diplomatic, and humanitarian assistance.”
It follows a call from Ukraine’s foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba, who said a special international tribunal to prosecute a crime of aggression case would “fill a gap” in global efforts to bring the Putin regime to account.
