Since the very beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, the Russian soldiers have been killing, maiming and raping Ukrainian women, men and children.

Rape as a war crime is the most serious crime and one of the constituent elements of genocide. Russia uses rape and sexual violence in other forms as tactics of warfare, systematically, everywhere, and with striking brutality, which is part of its will to destroy the Ukrainian people.

Inaction and turning a blind eye to the atrocities of the Russian military is a form of complicity. Do not be accomplices! Do not be silent! Act! Stop Russian aggression in Ukraine! Stop rape in war!
