It also also explores other avenues for accountability at other national, regional and international level, including the International Criminal Court (ICC). The event gives the floor to field actors, representatives of NGOs and human rights activists from Russia, Ukraine, and international experts and activists, including from European countries involved in restoring peace and in the fight against impunity for international crimes committed in Donbass.
