Russia Casts "Dark Shadow" over KP Meeting

Russia's "unprovoked and unjustified war against Ukraine" cast a very dark shadow over KP's plenary meeting, delegates were told on Monday,6 November.

"The Kimberley Process was created to stop wars, but today it is a war that risks stopping the KP," said Dr. Michel Yoboue, Civil Society Coalition Coordinator, in his opening statement at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.He warned that Russia was once more set to jeopardize progress at the five-day hybrid online and in-person session. "Progress is extremely urgent, as Russia's war is unfortunately not the only issue that deeply concerns us," he said.He also highlighted what he described as a "complete lack of justice for victims of human rights abuse linked to diamond mining".
