U.S. Attorney General makes unannounced visit to Ukraine


US Attorney General Merrick Garland paid an unannounced visit to Lviv on Friday at the invitation of Ukraine’s attorney general, a spokesman for the US Department of Justice said.

“The Attorney General held several meetings and reaffirmed our determination to hold Russia accountable for the crimes committed during its unjust and unprovoked invasion against a sovereign neighboring country,” the spokesperson said.

Garland spoke at the United for Justice conference. This forum discussed specific initiatives and actions that the international community is taking with Ukraine to seek justice and bring to justice those responsible for war crimes and atrocities in Ukraine.

“Just over twelve months ago, invading Russian troops began committing atrocities on a scale not seen in any armed conflict since World War II,” he said.

Garland recalled that in partnership with Ukraine and the international community, the United States has launched a criminal investigation into war crimes in Ukraine that may violate US law.

“As we continue to build cases, interview witnesses and collect evidence, we have already identified specific suspects. Our prosecutors are working day and night to bring them to justice as soon as possible,” he said. .
