Geneva Call in the news – Georgian fighters in Ukraine wrestle with international humanitarian law
6 July 2022
Kyiv (Ukraine) (AFP) – His forearm tattooed “Never forget, never forgive,” the head of the Georgian National Legion Mamuka Mamulashvili listens intently to a presentation on the need for fighters in Ukraine to respect international humanitarian law.
The event in the capital Kyiv is organised by a Swiss NGO called Geneva Call as part of its efforts to meet and provide guidance to a wide range of Ukrainian combatants.
As fighting rages, Geneva Call aims to impartially convey the rules of international combat to fighters who may have had little or no training, says Marie Lequin, head of its Eurasia region.
