Wanton destruction of settlements

«…wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity is a war crime.» Principle VI(b) of the 1950 Nuremberg Principles

The Russians fired 1,000 different missiles at Ukrainian cities and towns. They destroyed cities such as Mariupol, Volnovakha, Bucha, and Gostomel to the ground.

Up until February 24, Ukrainian cities were full of life. They prospered. They grew. Mariupol, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel… The streets of these cities were like any others in Europe, teeming with peaceful people living their lives. Now, after Russia’s brutal invasion, only fear, death, and despair are spreading on these streets.
