A Kyiv court is set to hear the first war crimes case of the war, with a Russian soldier on trial accused of killing an unarmed Ukrainian civilian.

The trial may be the first of many in a conflict that have seen mounting accusations of atrocities by Russian forces as their military campaign flounders. The Kremlin has also seen its invasion backfire geopolitically, with neighboring Finland now on the brink of NATO membership in response to Moscow's aggression.
