What Is a War Crime

Will Putin Be Charged Over Ukraine Invasion?

The International Criminal Court is investigating possible war crimes in Ukraine.

The US ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday described Russian actions in Ukraine as war crimes.

Events being investigated by the US State Department, human rights groups and an international court

that presides over crimes against humanity include the seizure of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and the bombing of a maternity hospital in the southern city of Mariupol.

The allegations of war crimes come days after NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Russia's alleged use of cluster bombs

which deliver a deadly rain of smaller "bomblets," also constituted a war crime.

Here's what you need to know about war crimes, including how they're defined,

who prosecutes them and which crimes Russia is accused of committing.
