“Nearly 1.5 million people have signed it, an extraordinary sign of resolution from people across the world.
“What started off as a European project has now won support from every continent, with backing for a special tribunal from former heads of state and prime ministers in Australia, Canada and across Latin America.
“It reflects the widespread global revulsion at the war crimes committed against Ukraine by Russian forces.
“At the request of Ukraine, our petition proposes that the ICC sets up a special tribunal to probe the crime of aggression by Putin and his associates.
