“Serious allegations have been raised, including indication of the possible commission of genocide and war crimes. The determination of the commission of the crime of genocide can only be made by a court of competent jurisdiction. My Office does not carry out. criminal investigations on specific incidents, present or past. Without judicial or quasi-judicial powers my office does not determine whether specific situations, either ongoing or from the past, legally qualify as the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.”

“There are already many victims of this war. It is unlikely that we will ever be able to count them accurately. But there will be more, much more if we do not stop Russia and don’t do everything possible to make the Russians understand their mistake. If this process of bringing them back to humanistic values does not happen, as it did in Germany, Russia will do it again and again.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Jared Andrew Cohen, CEO, Jigsaw (formerly Google Ideas):
“In 2016, I wrote in TIME magazine that all wars will begin as cyberwars, noting that they will unfoldsilently, invisibly and relatively inexpensively. This observation is even more true today, but the types of attacks we see have unfortunately diversified and democratized. Nowhere has this more true than Ukraine. Let me be clear on one thing. There is nothing we will see in terms of cyber attacks that we won’t see first and worst in Ukraine. It has been disproportionately targeted by the most advanced cyber attacks since 2014. It’s essentially our crystal ball for what is to come.”

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Richard M. Mills, Jr. Deputy Representative to the United Nations, United States:
“I think it's clear from what we've heard and what we know instinctively that aggressors use hate speech and disinformation to foment mistrust agitate division and ultimately fuel their violence, as we are seeing Russia do as it wages its unpremeditated, unprovoked war against Ukraine.”
10. Wide shot, Security Council
11. SOUNDBITE (Russian) Vasily Nebenzya, Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Russian Federation:
“You are spending billions on a proxy war with Russia "to the last Ukrainian." This is the real incitement to violence on your part. You also indulge in frenzied Russophobia in your countries, indulging the Poles, Czechs and Balts who have long been obsessed with it. In your countries, there are even stickers in some shops and bars stating that Russians are not served there. How is this different from racism ?”
12. Close up, Security Council president
13. SOUNDBITE (English) Sergiy Kyslytsya, Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ukraine:
“If we let Putin or his successor on the Kremlin throne throne regrow their chopped back claws soaked in the blood of Ukrainians, the next war is imminent and the civilized world will pay three times the price that is being paid today. Let's finish off Russian fascism now.”

STORYLINE:

The United Nations’ Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Alice Nderitu, told the Security Council that “serious allegations have been raised, including indication of the possible commission of genocide and war crimes” by Russia in Ukraine, but said that “the determination of the commission of the crime of genocide can only be made by a court of competent jurisdiction.”


“My Office does not carry out criminal investigations on specific incidents, present or past. Without judicial or quasi-judicial powers my office does not determine whether specific situations, either ongoing or from the past, legally qualify as the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes,” Nderitu added.

The Head of the Centre for Strategic Communication and Information Security, Liubov Tsybulska, noted that “there are already many victims of this war”, but said that “it is unlikely that we will ever be able to count them accurately.”

Tsybulska warned that “there will be more, much more if we do not stop Russia and don’t do everything possible to make the Russians understand their mistake.”

For the expert, “if this process of bringing them back to humanistic values does not happen, as it did in Germany, Russia will do it again and again.”

Council members also heard from Jared Andrew Cohen, the CEO of Jigsaw (formerly Google Ideas), who spoke about cyberwars.

Cohen said that, in 2016, he wrote in TIME magazine that all wars will begin as cyberwars, noting that they “will unfoldsilently, invisibly and relatively inexpensively.”

For him, this observation is “even more true today”, but the types of attacks have “unfortunately diversified and democratized.”

“Nowhere has this more true than Ukraine. Let me be clear on one thing. There is nothing we will see in terms of cyber attacks that we won’t see first and worst in Ukraine. It has been disproportionately targeted by the most advanced cyber attacks since 2014. It’s essentially our crystal ball for what is to come,” the expert said.

Representing the United States, Richard M. Mills, Jr., the Deputy Representative, noted that “aggressors use hate speech and disinformation to foment mistrust agitate division and ultimately fuel their violence”.

According to the ambassador, this is what is happening as Russia “wages its unpremeditated, unprovoked war against Ukraine.”

The Russian Permanent Representative, Vasily Nebenzya, said that some countries are “spending billions on the proxy war with Russia” and called this a “real incitement to violence”.

“In your countries, there are even stickers in some shops and bars stating that Russians are not served there. How is this different from racism?”, Nebenzya asked.

The Ukrainian Permanent Representative, Sergiy Kyslytsya, told the Council that if the international community lets “Putin or his successor on the Kremlin throne regrow their chopped back claws soaked in the blood of Ukrainians, the next war is imminent and the civilized world will pay three times the price that is being paid today.”

“Let's finish off Russian fascism now,” Kyslytsya concluded.
