A coalition of nations that asked the International Criminal Court to open an investigation over possible Russian war crimes in Ukraine has met to pledge support for the probe.
The court’s chief prosecutor on Thursday urged them to stand up in support of the global legal order.
Britain said before the meeting that it was boosting its support for the I.C.C. war crimes in Ukraine with cash and specialist staff as it hosted the meeting of the coalition of nations that back the investigation.
France announced it will provide magistrates, investigators and experts and 500,000 euros ($550,000) in extra funding that may be increased if needed.
France is the third-largest contributor to the I.C.C. budget.
