NEW DELHI: Ukraine continues to work on the establishment of a Special Tribunal for the crime of aggression, and any hybrid formats of such a tribunal are unacceptable. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this during a meeting with media representatives following the negotiations with Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte and Prime Minister of Belgium Alexander De Croo in The Hague.
Zelenskyy emphasized that 35 countries have already joined the Core Group to establish a Special Tribunal.
"We will work without any hybrid formats, we will work on a specific tribunal to ensure accountability for their crimes, murders, and torture. We understand who gave the orders. These people must not be untouchable. This is very important for us, this is one of the fundamental issues," Zelenskyy said.
He noted that Ukraine will not agree to any hybrid formats of a tribunal for Russia's crimes.
"We have seen the Minsk agreements since 2014 - they were a kind of hybrid peace. We know what it led to. Therefore, Ukraine does not want to agree to any hybrid peace, hybrid tribunal as a continuation of this," he emphasized.
