The Ukrainian media reported on the campaign organised jointly by several Ukrainian NGOs, including the Open Dialog Foundation. The people gathered there said a prayer together to commemorate the Maidan victims of February 2014 and pleaded for the ratification of the Rome Statute.
“The Rome Statute may provide a safeguard which will prevent a repetition of the serious offences such as those which took place during Maidan. (…) Even though some might think that the country is now facing more important challenges than the Rome Statute, we must take precautions for the future, emphasised Anastasia Chornogorska of the Open Dialog Foundation.
