Russia’s escalating pattern of behavior
- Chechnya, where Russians perpetrated rape and torture of women and children and carried out mass civilian executions, led to no consequences.
- Georgia, where Russia ethnically cleansed Georgians and killed civilians indiscriminately, has only seen these crimes formally acknowledged by the European Court of Human Rights in the last year.
- In Syria, Russia helped the Assad regime cast doubt on its use of chemical weapons on civilians with a long-term coordinated campaign. Russia has been complicit in the torture of Syrians, killed thousands of children, used illegal cluster munitions at least 125 times, and fired on US positions. “Russia has used its right to veto many times despite becoming a party to the Syrian conflict,” which violates the Charter of the United Nations, and there have been no meaningful consequences for Russian involvement.
- Ukraine received inadequate support in 2014 and was pressured to settle for peace. Russia invaded in 2022 anyway, in violation of the Minsk agreements.
