Based on its investigations of the events in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, and Sumy regions, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine has previously reported reasonable grounds to conclude that an array of war crimes, violations of human rights and international humanitarian law have been committed in Ukraine. It has argued that “there is an undeniable need for accountability”.

At the 52nd session, the COI will present a new report to the Council. This side event will follow the interactive dialogue with the COI during the session and allows an opportunity for various actors focused on aspects of the accountability process to provide an assessment of the situation in Ukraine and consider options for furthering accountability.
