Australia has joined the list of countries
that will assist in the creation of a special international tribunal on Russia’s
crimes in Ukraine, Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong said in a Twitter
post on Jan. 25.

“Australia has joined a core group of partners, including France and the UK, to ensure Russia’s leadership is held accountable for its illegal invasion of Ukraine,” Wong wrote.

On Jan. 19, 2023, the European Parliament adopted a resolution demanding the Russian political and military leadership be held accountable for the crime of aggression against Ukraine.

On Oct. 7, 2022, the Ukrainian parliament called on the international community to establish a special tribunal for the crime of Russian aggression against Ukraine.

On Sept. 22, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy formed a task force to push for an international tribunal.
