Ukraine is pursuing war-crimes charges against leaders of JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and other major Western banks over their purported indirect financing of the Russian state, an economic advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Tuesday.
“There is no doubt that Russia is committing war crimes in Ukraine, against Ukrainians,” Oleg Ustenko, the advisor, said in an interview with CNBC. “In our logic, everybody who is financing these war criminals who are doing these terrible things in Ukraine are also committing war crimes.”
