Geneva Call in the news – Teaching the humanitarian ABC to Ukraine war fighters
30 May 2022
All armed conflicts open the door to violations of international humanitarian law (IHL), and the war in Ukraine is no exception. Attacks on a maternity ward, videos of captured soldiers shared on Twitter or the use of anti-personnel landmines, are some of the reports that have come out over the last three months, raising concerns about potential breaches of the rules of armed conflict.
Active in the Donbas region since fighting began in 2014, Geneva Call has been working on the ground with non-state armed groups to make sure they know and respect their international obligations.
