The report provides an overview of the crimes committed during the Euromaidan events from November 2013 to February 2014, that amount to crimes against humanity. The repression of the peaceful protests led to 115 murders, including at least 95 activists of Euromaidan; at least 700 protesters were seriously injured and 27 people are still missing.
Our organisations call on the ICC Office of the Prosecutor to open an investigation into this situation.
On 17 April 2014, Ukraine submitted a formal Article 12(3) declaration to the ICC recognising the jurisdiction of the ICC over the situation in Ukraine from 21 November 2013 to 22 February 2014. On 25 April 2014, the ICC Prosecutor opened a preliminary examination into the Euromaidan events. In November 2014, an ICC delegation visited Kyiv to assess the situation.
