Zelensky wants to prosecute western banks for ‘war crimes’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky might be getting a little too big for his britches as he now intends to see major US and European banks prosecuted for ‘committing war crimes’

According to top Zelensky aide Oleg Ustenko, who spoke to CNBC, the Ukrainian leader is upset that major banks continue to finance western companies that trade oil with Russia.

“Everybody who is financing these war criminals, who are doing these terrible things in Ukraine, are also committing war crimes in our logic,” said Ustenko on Tuesday. The aide, who serves as Zelensky’s economic advisor, named JP Morgan, HSBC, and Citi as three such banks guilty of apparent “war crimes.”

Asked if the banks should prosecuted for war crimes, Ustenko replied, “Exactly.”

Zelensky, he said, believes the banks should be held accountable for prolonging the conflict in Ukraine, arguing that their continued support of companies that trade oil with Russian companies are effectively financing Russia’s military effort.
