Washington DC, 16 September 2022 (TDI): The US Mission to NATO revealed on Friday that Lawyer and Former Director of the US Department of Justice, Eli Rosenbaum, referred to as U.S. Nazi Hunter, will continue investigating war crimes in Ukraine.

It also guaranteed that the US will continue to stand with the United-With-Ukraine movement as long as the people of Ukraine don’t receive justice.

At the US Department of Justice, Eli Rosenbaum has spent decades gathering evidence and bringing cases against Nazi war criminals. He has now been focusing on looking into Ukrainian war crimes.

Eli Rosenbaum: Nazi Hunter

Due to his years spent tracking down, denouncing, and expelling Nazi war criminals from the United States, Rosenbaum has earned the title “Nazi hunter.”

Furthermore, he was involved in the working of 100 cases that resulted in the citizenship of Nazi accusers being forfeited. These included the prosecution of a former guard at a Nazi concentration camp in Tennessee in 2020, 75 years after the crime was committed.

During the Ukraine Accountability Conference in the Hague on July 14, Rosenbaum said, “It is certainly our responsibility as countries that respect the rule of law to ensure that those who have committed ghastly crimes in the wake of Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine do not escape justice.”

Along these lines, while delivering a statement in the Hague on July 14, US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken said, “Every atrocity sends out waves of suffering that most of us cannot comprehend. It is our responsibility to hold the perpetrators accountable and deliver justice and support for the growing number of victims.”

He also promised, “It may take time, even years in some instances, for the conditions to exist to bring those committing such crimes in Ukraine to justice, but I would submit that recent history shows that the civilized world is more committed than ever before to ending impunity for those crimes.”

War in Ukraine

Since February 2014, Russia and Ukraine have been at war with one another along with Russian separatists in Ukraine.

Russia started hostilities soon after Ukraine’s Revolution for Dignity near the conclusion of the Euromaidan events when violent clashes between protestors and police forces in Kyiv resulted in the toppling of elected President Viktor Yanukovych, the fall of the Ukrainian government, and the commencement of the Russo-Ukrainian War.

The conflicts were centered on the political status of Crimea and the Donbas, which are still seen as part of Ukraine internationally. Russia’s annexation of Crimea was the culmination of incursions into Ukrainian territory.

However, this was shortly after, the conflict in Donbas between Russia-backed separatists and Ukrainian state forces began.

Apart from this, during the first eight years of the conflict, there were also naval incidents, cyberattacks, and heightened political tensions. Due to a Russian military buildup encircling Ukrainian territory, bilateral tensions increased in 2021.

Eventually, on February 24, 2022, the war significantly escalated when Russia invaded mainland Ukraine.
