WASHINGTON, D.C. You are invited to attend a USUBC webinar "Russia's Brutal Crimes Against the People of Ukraine" – on Thursday, May 12, 2022 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. EDT, 5:30 p.m. Kyiv time via ZOOM.

“Over the past 10 weeks, the world has watched in horror as Russia’s forces in Ukraine have committed atrocities of unspeakable brutality.  Each reported execution or rape is evidence of a serious crime of the utmost brutality and depravity.  Yet Russia’s soldiers are not committing these acts in isolation.  We heard from the Moscow Mechanism experts that there is indeed a clear pattern of violating international law on the part of Russia’s forces.  With each passing day, this pattern becomes more apparent…

Mr. Chair, in spite of Russia’s brutal aggression, the people of Ukraine know who they are.  No amount of lies or dehumanizing disinformation from the Kremlin will change that.  No bullets, no mortars or missiles can ever purge Ukraine from the hearts of its people.”
