The United States and its allies are vowing to hold Russia accountable for crimes






In nearly 100 days, Russian forces have bombed maternity hospitals, train stations, apartment buildings and homes, and even killed pedestrians cycling along the street, U.S. Undersecretary of State Uzra Zeya said at a UN meeting on strengthening accountability for serious violations of international law.



Attorney General Paul Gallagher said Ireland was one of 41 countries to refer the situation in Ukraine to the International Criminal Court within days of it taking place, and said he is pleased the calls for justice have grown in the last three months.



Zeya said the United States is working with its allies to support a broad range of international investigations into atrocities in Ukraine.



Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, accused Western nations of "hypocrisy" for suddenly seeking international law enforcement over its "special operation" in Ukraine.
