The Attorney General led a scoping mission to the region in May, to assess how the UK could help the Ukrainian Prosecutor General to identify and collect evidence of atrocities. Since then, the UK has been supporting the Office of the Prosecutor General in its work to investigate potential war crimes committed in Ukraine. Our support has included the creation of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group, which the UK helped to establish alongside the United States and the European Union, and a £2.5 million support package.
