Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is skeptical the U.N. Human Rights Council will be thorough in its freshly-announced investigation of alleged Russian war crimes in Ukraine, she told Fox News Digital Thursday.
The HRC held a special session Thursday to address Ukraine’s allegations that Russian troops had committed atrocities against civilians during their withdrawal from around Kyiv. The organization voted 33-2 in favor of opening an investigation, with China and Eritrea voting against the measure and 12 nations abstaining.
“Russia has been one of the world’s worst human rights abusers for decades, and the U.N. Human Rights Council has routinely ignored their atrocities,” Haley told Fox. “I’m skeptical that the HRC (will) finally wake up to Russian crimes, but if it does, I’ll say ‘better late than never.'”
