War in Ukraine: The Question of Genocide


Seventy years ago, the UN Genocide Convention was born with a promise ‘never again’ to ensure that no one in the world faces genocides and horrors of Nazi Holocaust ever again. But history has never been kind. With new atrocities, the promise is never fulfilled, the question of genocide has risen time and again. On February 24th 2022, the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine began, leaving an extreme impact on the Ukrainian people. With the threat of annihilation and expansionism, profound mass atrocities have emerged leading to the concern of genocide. 


On the one year anniversary of this invasion, watch world’s leading experts discuss the nature of the war crimes and genocidal atrocities undergoing in Ukraine and its implications on Ukrainian identity.
