Council of Europe has approved a register of damage to document the damage in Ukraine caused by the Russian forces so Moscow could be held liable for compensation.

In a statement today after the two-day summit of the council of Europe held in Iceland, council head, Marija Pejcinovic Buric said register was necessary and urgent to ensure record is kept and justice is served, to vindicate victims of the Ukraine war.

In her speech, European commission president Ursula von der Leyen stated that Ukraine was fighting for the tenets of freedom which all nation should uphold to sustain the sanctity of sovereignty.

Ukrainian president applauded the council for support and aid, while appealing for proper examination of war crime cases against Putin and Russia.

Earlier, 40 countries agreed to the register, with the United States, Canada and Japan who attended as observers also supporting the creation of the register.
