Ukraine says 13,000 Russian war crimes being probed

Ukraine’s prosecutor general says the country’s authorities are investigating about 13,000 cases of alleged war crimes carried out by Russian forces.

“As of this day, we have more than 13,000 cases [being probed] only about war crimes,” Iryna Venediktova told US newspaper The Washington Post.

Russia has repeatedly denied targeting civilians and accusations its forces have carried out war crimes during what it calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian president urges the international community to cut all trade with Moscow, says Kyiv needs $5bn a month for rebuilding.
