Russian Troops Are Raping Women In Ukraine - Dmytro Kuleba (Foreign Minister)

Russian troops are raping women as they rampage across Ukraine, the country’s foreign minister claimed today.

Dmytro Kuleba accused Vladimir Putin ’s forces of committing sex attacks as they invaded cities.

He said there were “numerous” cases of women being targeted.

Speaking to the Chatham House foreign affairs think-tank via a video link, he said: "When bombs fall on your cities, when soldiers rape women in the occupied cities - and we have numerous cases of, unfortunately, when Russian soldiers rape women in Ukrainian cities - it's difficult of course to speak about the efficiency of international law.

“But this is the only tool of civilisation that is available to us, to make sure that in the end, eventually, all those who made this war possible will be brought to justice, and the Russian Federation, as a country that committed an act of aggression, will be held accountable for its deeds.”

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie teamed up with then Foreign Secretary William Hague in 2014 to raise awareness of how rape was used as weapon of war.

The pair hosted aN End Sexual Violence in Conflict global summit in London, bringing together officials from more than 100 countries.

Mr Hague said at the time: “This is a subject that the world did not want to talk about for a long time.

"We have moved a long way in the last two years in getting the world to talk about what was a taboo subject, and now we have to follow it with action.”

Gordon Brown, who spoke at the same event, called for Vladimir Putin to face a Nuremberg-style war crimes tribunal.

The former Prime Minister said the Russian premier should be held to account for atrocities committed as his forces invade Ukraine.
