Germany receives 337 reports of war crimes in Ukraine

Apr 16, 2023

As of mid-April, the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) received 337 reports of possible war crimes in Ukraine. This was reported by Yevropeiska Pravda with reference to Deutsche Welle.


The German Ministry of the Interior provided information on the data received on war crimes in response to a request from CDU MP Gunther Krings.

The information has been collected since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February last year. It is being provided by Ukrainian refugees in Germany or German citizens who have been or are currently in Ukraine.

BKA supports Ukrainian investigators technically by purchasing and providing materials for forensic examinations.

In 2022, the BKA purchased equipment - for example, for the protection of evidence and documentation - worth more than 11.5 million euros and handed it over to the Ukrainian authorities.

Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine called on the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to pay attention to the video of the brutal execution of a Ukrainian prisoner by the Russian military.
