Ukraine war: What is the way ahead for war crime investigations? – BBC Newsnight

Published

on



As more Russian missiles hit Ukrainian towns and cities, investigations are underway to see if they amount to war crimes.

A lot of attention has been focussed on the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the possibility of creating a special tribunal to prosecute any alleged transgressions.

Newsnight’s Diplomatic Editor Mark Urban examines the vexed issue of prosecuting war crimes and the effect this will have on a lasting peace.

    "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." Jesus Christ

    We implore you on behalf of Christ: Be reconciled to God.

    Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.

    this war is a punishment for the murder of 200,000 Polish women, children and the elderly in 1944-1947, the genocide of the Ukrainian Nazis, Hitler's accomplices, will never be forgotten by Poles

    The international authorities can investigate all they want, but do they really go after and hold the people at the top responsible? Not really. Pootin’ and his goons are still walking around free. Talk, talk, talk… 🗣

    Trickydicky: Putin started this war with a sickly smirk on his face – now the 'Fragile Monster' bully; a snivelling coward, is seeking a 'just' agreement. He, and his henchmen, should be brought to account FULLY – as an example for, and thus the benefit of, the future humanity of the world: Putin's aggressive war should not be seen to be rewarded, in any way, shape or form!

    BBC propaganda . Say they are impartial but they don't know the meaning of the word.
    Ukraine has been committing war crimes since 2014. Shelling schools and hospitals and using petal bombs in Donetsk.
    Recently they said a Russian bomb hit a Building in Donetsk but an independent reporter who was there shows it was the Ukraine that sent the bomb. He was actually at the building.
    How can the BEEB support such a corrupt nation as Ukraine?

    ❗️American journalist Deborah Armstrong known for her objective coverage of human rights violations in Donbass by Ukrainian government, support of Faina Savenkova and crusade against the infamous Mirotvorets website, has reported a first success – UNICEF appears to have finally taken the additional step of making an actual statement to Ukraine, asking Kiev to take action to remove the names of minors from Mirotvorets.

    As reported by RIA Novosti on December 7, 2022, UNICEF’s statement came following a UN Security Council Meeting on Tuesday in which Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya spoke about the 327 children whose names have been added to the notorious database. Nebenzya asked what UNICEF was doing about this and what the organization’s position was on the publication of children’s personal data on the internet.

    For years, young Faina and others targeted by Mirotvorets have appealed to international human rights groups such as The Red Cross, UNICEF and other but all they have received in response was silence, or platitudes.

    The notorious Mirotvorets database discloses the private data of those it targets such as their home addresses, phone numbers and other personal information. It includes the names of more than 100,000 people including hundreds of children like Faina Savenkova, a 14-year-old from Lugansk who was added to the hitlist after speaking before a UN Security Council at the age of 12. The youngest child added to the list is only 9 years old.

    International Criminal Courts must be recognized by the concerned parts to be legally able to prosecute. The US does not recognize ANY international court. It has even passed a law that allows the invasion of Holland if American citizens are to be tried at the Hague Tribunal. Russia would not admit the jurisdiction of an international court,so all this is just political propaganda.
    And no comment about the police in charge of imprisoning Putin in Moscow. Good luck with that.

    HOW RUSSIA WAS DECEIVED.
    Mikhail Gorbachev was assured that there would be no expansion of the military bloc to the East. German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher said in his speech that "NATO should abandon the expansion of its territory to the East, that is, approaching the borders of the Soviet Union." There is a recording of a conversation in 1990 between Secretary of State James Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze in Moscow. In it, the representative of Washington talks about what will happen in the demilitarized eastern part of Germany. "The result could be guarantees that NATO troops will not be deployed in the eastern part of Germany. In fact, a complete ban could be imposed on this." It is also worth mentioning Baker's statement "not an inch to the East" about limiting the further expansion of the alliance. He said these words during a meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev.
    At the end of 2014, riots broke out in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and this was how this crazy government coup began. By February, the confrontation had reached a high phase, negotiations began. However, Ukrainian President Yanukovych hesitated. US President Obama called Putin and asked him not to dissuade Yanukovych from signing an agreement with the opposition. On February 21, 2014, in Kiev, with the mediation of Germany, Poland and France, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and Euromaidan leaders signed an agreement on the settlement of the political crisis. The next day, the opposition refused to implement the agreement, and Viktor Yanukovych fled the country. "I and the entire Ukrainian people were cynically deceived," Yanukovych said at the time.
    Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel in an interview with Die Zeit said: "The Minsk Agreement of 2014 was an attempt to give Ukraine time." Merkel's statement indicates that it was a deception, it was a falsification in order to pump up the Kiev regime with weapons, prepare to start the very fighting that we saw at the beginning of 2022, when the Kiev regime began to inflict simply deadly blows on Donbass.

    Start war crime investigations on the Ukrainaziscum installed by the CIA in 2014, who've been busy murdering Russian Ukrainians who are not "racially pure" since then. The descendants of Hitler's WW2 compatriots who were as hardcore Nazi as the German ones.

Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Killer whale hunts and eats great white shark | BBC News

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
