To World leaders: As citizens from across the world, we urgently call on you to hold Putin and his accomplices personally accountable for their illegal invasion of Ukraine by creating a new Special Tribunal for the punishment of the crime of aggression. We also call on you to fully support the International Criminal Court’s separate investigation into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Ukraine. There will never be peace without such accountability – we are counting on you.

- Watch your language. News reports about Putin's invasion of Ukraine, often generalize by country ("Russia warns United States," "Ukranian cities pounded by more Russian attacks" — 2 examples from Reuters), as if all the people of Russia agree with Putin's invasion. Let's be clear: this is Putin's action. Although some may agree with him, there was no vote and I doubt that all Russian people are supportive.
