France Launching an International Tribunal to Investigate Russia

Alexei Bobrovsky (Алексей Бобровский)

The French Foreign Ministry has announced that it is launching an international tribunal to investigate Russia's actions in Ukraine.

I strongly advise the Russian Foreign Ministry not to dismiss this French idiocy. It is only idiocy at first glance, but it will later be an argument in negotiations (there will be negotiations at some point). Apparently, they should not only be periodically reminded of their place in history (thanks to Stalin, for example, they are the victors in the Second World War), but also of their war crimes, just in case people forget about it.

Especially for those to whom the great and mighty gave the word "la Bérézina", which has become synonymous with the word "disaster", I remind you that in 2023 the second Russia-Africa forum will be held in St. Petersburg. In terms of the number of visiting heads of state, it is the most representative forum in the world, but that is not the point. What if the French remember everything? They do not forget in Africa.

We could gather a lot of material. A dozen tribunals could be set up, even if you only approach it with a light touch. France was formally kicked out of its colonies in Africa in the 1960s, but it is still there with tanks and aircraft, and is regularly attacking certain countries, setting up bases there, and interfering in its internal affairs.

In the 21st century alone, the French military, mostly with the knowledge of the government, committed massive war crimes in Africa. It is a long talk about the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but here is a list of France's operations in Africa alone (by the way, they did not call anything a war), just to make you understand:

1956-1963. Operations in Western Sahara in support of Mauritania and Morocco.
1959-1964. Intervention in Cameroon, punitive operations against rebels.
1961. Operation Bouledogue - invasion of Tunisia.
1964. Intervention in Gabon.
1968-1972. Operations Limousin and Bison in Chad.
1977. Operation Verbena in Zaire.
1977-1978. Operation Lamatin in Mauritania and Western Sahara.
1978. Operation Kolwezi of Zaire.
1978-1980. Operation Tacaud in Chad.
1979-1981. Operations Caban and Barracuda in CAR.
1983-1984. Operation Manta in Chad.
1985. French air force raid on the Libyan Ouad-Doum airbase in northern Chad.
1986. An amphibious landing in Togo.
1986-2014. Operation Epervier intervention in Chad.
1989. Operation Oside in the Comoros.
1990. Intervention in Gabon.
1990-1993. Operation Noroit in Rwanda.
1991. French and Belgian intervention in Zaire.
1992-1994. Operation Oryx intervention in Somalia.
1992-1999. Operation Iskoutir in Djibouti.
1993. Intervention in Congo.
1994. Operation Amaryllis in Rwanda.
1994. Operation Turquoise in Rwanda.
1995. Operation Azalea in the Comoros.
1996-1997. Operation Almandine I and II. Punitive operations against rebels in the CAR capital.
1996-2007. Operation Aramis in Cameroon.
1997. Operation Pelican in Congo.
1997. Operation Espadon - intervention in Sierra Leone.
1998. Operation Malachite intervention in Congo.
2002. Operation Licorne. Attack on Côte d'Ivoire.
2003. Operation Artemis intervention in Congo.
2004. Destruction of the Ivorian air force in response to an attack on a French base in Bouaké.
2008. Intervention in Chad, involvement in civil war.
2008. War against Eritrea on the side of Djibouti.
2011. Overthrow of Ivorian president.
2011. Operation Harmattan. France's attack on Libya.
2013. Operation Serval. Military intervention in Mali.
2013. Operation Sangaris. Military intervention in the Central African Republic.
2014. Operation Barkhan. Invasion of Mali, Chad, Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Niger.

France's involvement in the destruction of Asian countries, is a separate story. But they can also be tribunalized.

For example, from 2001 to 2021 French mercenaries were part of the international forces that attacked Afghanistan.

Maybe we will reach a tribunal on Syria, the destruction of which Macron is so proud of...
