EU, US, UK form atrocity crime advisory group

The European Union, the United States and the United Kingdom announced on Wednesday the creation of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA), which will strengthen their current attempts to heighten accountability for alleged atrocity crimes in Ukraine and give further support to its people.

ACA's goal is to support the investigation of the War Crimes Units of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine (OPG) and the prosecution of conflict-related crimes. "It is critical to ensure that all those responsible for the terrible atrocities committed during the unprovoked Russian military aggression in Ukraine are brought to justice," European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell stated.

On the same day, European Council announced the adoption of new rules which would allow Eurojust to preserve, analyze and store evidence relating to core international crimes, due to be signed by the European Parliament and the Council on May 30.
