US, Europe urges Russia to stop alleged sexual violence in Ukraine

WorldRussiaUS, Europe urges Russia to stop alleged sexual violence in Ukraine
The United States and Europe have urged Russia on Monday to stop alleged sexual violence by its arms and proxies in Ukraine, allegations that Moscow denounced as “lies.”
The pleas were made during a meeting of the UN Security Council, organized by Albania, which currently holds the rotating presidency.
Meanwhile, US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said, “It is on Russia to stop rape, violence, and atrocities from within its ranks. It is on Russia to end this unconscionable, unprovoked war on the people of Ukraine, and we call on the Russia to do just that.”
The President of the European Council denounced “atrocities” by Russia.
He said, “These crimes must be and will be punished. To hold accountable those who are responsible, we need evidence, and we are now helping to collect the evidence of these crimes.”
He mentioned that Moscow was “solely responsible” for a food crisis sparked by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The accusation led Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, to leave the chamber and be replaced with a deputy.
Nebenzia had earlier denied alleged sexual abuses committed by Russian forces in Ukraine.
“The accusations of sexual violence against the Russian army have become repetitive… but no proof has been provided,” he said.
Pramila Patten, the UN’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, urged that sexual violence crimes are “ultimately reflected” in any peace agreement.
“This includes ensuring that amnesties for sexual violence crimes are explicitly prohibited,” she said.
