Ukraine: EU, USA, and UK establish Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group for Ukraine

On 25 May, the European Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom announced the creation of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA).

This mechanism aims at ensuring efficient coordination of current EU, US and UK efforts to further accountability for atrocity crimes in the context of Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against Ukraine.

The Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group will be providing advice and supporting the ongoing efforts of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s War Crimes Units to collect, preserve, and analyse evidence of atrocities to help the investigations and ensure justice takes its course,” said EU High Representative Josep Borrell.

The ACA will bring together multinational experts to provide strategic advice and operational assistance to specialists at the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine and other stakeholders in areas such as collection and preservation of evidence, operational analysis, investigation of conflict-related sexual violence, crime scene and forensic investigations, drafting of indictments, and co-operation with international and national accountability mechanisms.
