Russia has changed tactics and is targeting more civilian infrastructure in an apparent bid to break Ukraine’s morale, when it faced fierce resistance following a planned invasion of the Kremlin.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Tuesday it was time for a diplomatic solution to end Russia’s invasion of its neighbour, amid signs of hope that progress was being made to end an “unbeatable” and “unforgivable” war.
The International Court of Justice of the United Nations ruled that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was illegal and ordered Russian President Vladimir Putin to immediately withdraw his troops. Former British prime ministers Sir John Major and Gordon Brown have called for the creation of a Nuremberg-style international tribunal to investigate Putin.
The proposal has been co-signed by intellectuals and academics as well as Ukrainian Foreign Ministers Dmitro Kuleba and Benjamin Ferenz, who is 102 years old and prosecuted Nazi war criminals in Nuremberg.
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights confirmed that a total of 953 civilians, including 78 children, had been killed in the war as of 21 March, but noted that the actual number could be much higher.
