According to Amnesty International, Russia's invasion of Ukraine is a flagrant breach of the United Nations Charter and an act of war that is a crime within international law, and all those participating in the crime should be held responsible. For it, as well as all of the other crimes that have characterized their assault of Ukraine thus far, they must be held personally, individually, and collectively liable. The organization emphasized the severity of the Ukraine issue and urged States parties to preserve and protect the UN Charter, which forbids the use of force towards a state's territorial sovereignty or national sovereignty. It stated that the only exemptions to those articles are self-defense and UN Security Council-authorized use of force, none of which apply to the current issue. Amnesty International further stated that all governments have an obligation under international treaties to handle international disputes peacefully and in a way that does not jeopardize global cooperation, security, and fairness. Russia's assault of Ukraine is terrible, serious, and characterized solely by one trait: aggressiveness. Russia is attacking Ukraine's heartland, attempting to remove its legitimately authoritarian parliament, endangering the lives, safety, and well-being of citizens; its actions cannot be supported onany of the justifications that Russia has presented.Keywords: Territorial sovereignty; human rightsviolations, invasion
