George Clooney Foundation to investigate Russian war crimes in Ukraine: evidence has already been handed over to German prosecutor's office

The Foundation for Justice, a foundation of the world-famous American actor George Clooney, has filed three lawsuits against the German Federal Prosecutor's Office, demanding an investigation into war crimes committed by the Russian occupiers in Ukraine. The organization has already handed over all the relevant evidence to the prosecutor's office.

The same materials were also sent to the office of the International Criminal Court prosecutor to support the case to bring the Russian government to justice for waging war against Ukraine. This information was published on the foundation's website.

"Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, a team of international lawyers and investigators working under the Foundation for Justice's Dossier initiative has been collecting evidence and preparing submissions detailing the patterns of violations committed by Russian troops in the country. The Dossier initiative collects evidence of international crimes, initiates prosecutions of those who commit war crimes and mass atrocities, and represents the interests of victims in their quest for justice," the foundation's representatives clarify.

Yes, members of the George Clooney Foundation investigated three episodes that occurred in Ukraine after the full-scale invasion of the terrorist country. They collected and submitted detailed dossiers on war criminals to the prosecutor's office, representing the interests of 16 victims and the families of the deceased.

We are talking about the missile attack with X-22 missiles on the village of Serhiivka in Odesa region in the summer of 2022. It killed 22 people and injured 40 others. The team represents the interests of 11 families of the victims and the injured. The second episode was the torture and murder of four men in Kharkiv region in March last year. There were also murders, looting, sexual violence and other offenses in the Kyiv region the same month.

Anna Neistat, Legal Director of the Dossier initiative, which collects evidence of crimes, said: "Our team has spent a year and a half interviewing witnesses, conducting fieldwork, analyzing documents, studying satellite images, deciding on the best legal approach and preparing the victims and their families for the trial. Now I am confident that these cases are strong and that they will give the German courts a real chance to achieve justice for the victims."

Based on the materials, the prosecutor's office may issue arrest warrants in the future, including through Europol and Interpol.

Earlier, George Clooney called for the destruction of the Wagner PMC. The Hollywood star accused Wagner of terror, suggesting that Western countries should unite in a coalition aimed at "destroying the business empire" of the private military company.

As OBOZ.UA wrote earlier, the son of George and Amal Clooney dedicated an eloquent drawing to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. The 5-year-old boy depicted a prison where, according to him, a war criminal should be imprisoned.
