The Czech Republic, which currently holds the rotating EU presidency, is calling for the establishment of an international war crimes tribunal this Saturday. This appeal follows the discovery of hundreds of bodies summarily buried in Ukraine on the outskirts of Izium, a town in eastern Ukraine.

The Czech Republic, which currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency, on Saturday called for the establishment of an international war crimes tribunal after hundreds of bodies buried in Ukraine were discovered. The appeal follows the discovery of around 450 graves on the outskirts of Izium, a town in eastern Ukraine that was retaken from the Russians last week, with some of the exhumed bodies showing signs of torture.

“In the 21st century, such attacks on civilians are unthinkable and abhorrent,” Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said on Twitter. “We must not ignore it. We are for the punishment of all war criminals,” he added.

“I demand the speedy creation of a special international tribunal that will prosecute the crime of aggression,” stressed Jan Lipavsky. According to investigators, some of the deceased had their hands tied behind their backs. Bodies of children were also found.

The Czech Republic, a former communist country and now a member of the EU and NATO, has taken in around 400,000 Ukrainian refugees and provided around $150 million worth of military aid to Ukraine, which was occupied by Russia on February 24.
