Liz Truss: We may support a tribunal to try Putin over war in Ukraine

Event

The UK is considering supporting a special international tribunal to try President Putin for the war in Ukraine, Liz Truss has said. In a conversation with Oleksiy Goncharenko, a Ukrainian MP, on Times Radio, the foreign secretary said that ministers were looking at the “most effective way” of holding Russia’s leaders to account for “appalling war crimes”. The Ukrainian government wants a special international tribunal to be established to try Putin and other members of the Russian government for the crime of aggression against Ukrainians. Asked by Goncharenko whether she would support the move, Truss replied:

“Well, we are very clear that Putin and all of those who’ve been behind the appalling war crimes that are being committed in Ukraine need to be held to account, and we’re working very closely with the ICC [International Criminal Court]. We’ve sent support into Ukraine to help collect evidence, from witness statements to video evidence.”

Comment

Britain wants Putin to be held personally accountable for the terrible conflict in Ukraine. Back in March, Dominic Raab, the UK justice secretary, pledged the “full support” of the British state to build a war crimes case against Putin and his military commanders in Ukraine. This week the UK foreign secretary has said that Britain will hold Putin to account.

The Bible says that the king of the south (US/UK) will push at Gog – the Russian ruler of Daniel 11 verse 36-39. This push is a personal provocation of the king and we see how personal it is for the UK. Britain is leading the way in pushing and provoking Putin. Britain has supplied thousands of Brimstone missiles that are destroying Russian tanks with pinpoint accuracy. Russia accuses the UK of fighting a proxy war against it. After the push the “king of the north” (Russia itself) invades Israel.

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)
