  • The images of dead bodies of civilians lying in the street in Bucha, Ukraine, has shocked the world and Sweden and other countries have initiated investigations into war crimes.

  • But what are the chances of actually bringing those responsible to justice?

  • We speak to John Stauffer, legal director at the international human rights organisation Civil Rights Defenders about this, and about the definition of war crimes.

Correction: In an earlier version of the audio we stated that CRD have observers on the ground, that was incorrect, but they are in close contact with human rights groups in Ukraine.
