IHL in the Ukraine-Russia conflict

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has triggered a humanitarian crisis and raises multiple legal questions. We highlight crucial humanitarian and protection issues in the conflict.

The invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces on 24 February 2022 was a violation of international law. We provide independent analysis and background on the legal aspects of the conflict to strengthen international humanitarian law (IHL) and to ensure the protection of affected populations.
