BUCHA, Ukraine — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urges Russia to cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) on investigations into possible war crimes carried out during its invasion of Ukraine.

“I fully support the ICC and I appeal to the Russian Federation to accept, to cooperate with the ICC. But when we talk about war crimes, we cannot forget that the worst of crimes is war itself,” the UN’s chief says during a visit to Bucha outside Kyiv, where hundreds of dead civilians were discovered after Russian troops pulled out.
