Mar 22, 2022
  • Description

This document outlines Amnesty International's main concerns and recommendations in view of the 24-25 March European Council discussion on the crisis in Ukraine.

Russia's invasion of Ukraine is a manifest violation of the United Nations Charter and an act of aggression that is a crime under international law. One month since the invasion, Amnesty International has documented an escalating pattern of violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law, with catastrophic consequences for the Ukrainian people and the entire civilian population.
