The Laws of War and the Russia-Ukraine War

February 1, 2023, 8:30 to 9:30 am

This presentation will discuss the legal rules that apply to Russia's invasion of Ukraine both as it pertains to the legality of the invasion itself as well as to specific military means and methods used to carry out military operations, such as targeting civilians, or the targeting of certain protected sites (such as hospitals) and of critical civilian infrastructure, as well as the use of drones, and more. Options for accountability of Russian military and civilian leaders and soldiers will also be examined.
