Why this is interesting:

Ukraine 5AM Coalition brought 31 organizations together to accomplish two key goals — to punish those guilty of the most serious crimes and to ensure justice for victims of russian aggression. At the press conference, experts of the Coalition will discuss how russia’s actions over the past year differ from what it has been doing in the occupied territories since 2014, what mechanisms of justice Ukraine can rely on in the investigation of these cases, and the role of the International Criminal Court in future justice.
