Amnesty International Secretary General Agnes Callamard said that there are statements by Russian President Vladimir Putin and other Russian leaders that testify to their hatred of the Ukrainian people.

She said this on the air of the All-Ukrainian Information Telethon.

"I can understand why the Ukrainian people want the biggest crime in the world to be revealed… there are statements, comments, and speeches by Putin and other Russian leaders that testify to their ignorance and hatred for the Ukrainian people; they commented on everything in such a way that Ukraine does not exist. We will use these statements as part of the evidence when we investigate the issue of genocide," Callamard said.

She also noted that in this war, violence becomes what leaders demand because they create appropriate systems of thinking.

“Violence becomes the main mode of action, it is tolerated, and sometimes even glorified … There is no control, and this creates conditions for violent behavior, there is a regime of impunity … Violence becomes what leaders demand, they create systems thinking that does not rule out these terrible acts. We see all this in this war. We have no evidence that the command requires torture or murder, but we have evidence that the leadership does not stop these crimes. Therefore, they are repeated again and again,"- said the Secretary General of Amnesty International.

Callamard stressed that the organization's mission is to convey to the rest of the world information about the scale and nature of the violations committed by the Russians in Ukraine, that Russian aggression is a problem for the whole world.

"We want to convey that this war is not only a Ukrainian problem, not only a European one, and certainly not a NATO problem. Russian aggression is a problem for the whole world. Many countries maintain neutrality and still show even sympathy for Russia. So, our mission to convey to the rest of the world information about the scale and nature of the violations committed by the Russians in Ukraine. There can be no neutrality with respect to Ukraine. And, of course, there should be no support for Russian aggression," Callamard stressed
