Justice for Ukraine Petition
The International Criminal Court (ICC) is currently investigating the war crimes committed as a result of the attack. The ICC is not, however, able to investigate the crime of aggression unless it is referred by the United Nations Security Council. Russia, as a member of the UN, has veto rights to this, which it would, of course, exercise immediately. Sign this petition to calling for an international tribunal to try President Putin for the crime of aggression. By signing, you will help ensure that all those involved in the terrible crimes against Ukraine are brought to justice.
