The UK is working closely with partners to ensure those committing atrocities in Ukraine are held to account. The UK is providing a £2.5m support package to the UK/EU/US established Atrocity Crimes Advisory group in support of the work of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine to investigate war crimes. The UK led efforts to refer the situation in Ukraine to the International Criminal Court (ICC), supported now by 43 countries. We contributed £1m to the ICC to increase evidence collection capacity. On 11 October, the Foreign Secretary met the ICC Prosecutor, Karim Khan KC, to discuss UK support.
