The General Prosecution of Ukraine has ‘documented over 8,000 crimes committed by the Russian Army in Ukraine’, Xhacka said.
Albania’s chief diplomat recalled the innocent people that were killed during the war in Kosovo in 1999.
She also reiterated that the world has ‘an obligation to bring justice to the people of Ukraine’, although there are no efficient ways to ‘prevent these occurrences from happening’.
Xhacka held that Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, should have been a watchdog of international laws.
“Russia has committed unimaginable crimes”, said Xhacka as she urged other countries to condemn war atrocities.
