“War crime”: France reacted to the Russian strike on the Dnieper
Paris will support Ukrainian and international courts to bring to justice those involved in these crimes.
France condemns in the strongest possible terms the Russian missile and drone strikes, which again targeted Kyiv last night, as well as the Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
In a statement, the press service of the French Foreign Ministry noted that this was the thirteenth May attack on the capital. It is also said that these strikes were again deliberately carried out on civilian targets, including a hospital in Dnipro, which is a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law.
“As Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna has repeatedly pointed out, these unacceptable actions constitute war crimes and cannot go unpunished. France will continue to support Ukrainian courts and the International Criminal Court in the fight against impunity for such crimes,” the statement reads.
The Foreign Ministry assured that France would continue to help Ukraine resist this illegal aggression, both military and humanitarian, for as long as needed.
