The chairman of the Independent Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine said on Friday that it was concluded that war crimes were committed in Ukraine based on evidence collected in four regions of the country.
“Based on the evidence gathered by the Commission, it is concluded that war crimes were committed in Ukraine,” Erik Møse told the UN Human Rights Council, based in Geneva, Switzerland.
His speech follows investigations in Kiev, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Sumy, where the Commission visited 27 sites and interviewed more than 150 victims and witnesses.
The Commission was established following a UN resolution on the human rights situation in Ukraine, adopted on March 4 this year.
The three human rights experts that make up the Commission were appointed by the president of the UN Human Rights Council, initially for a one-year assignment.
