Iraq, 2014

Observers have been hitting out at the hypocrisy of the West over events in Ukraine as reports emerge of mercenaries from the US, Germany, Turkey, Poland and other countries who formed part of the Euromaidan activists and militants. VoR's Scott Craig spoke to broadcaster and journalist Neil Clark, who said Western indignation at the events in Ukraine is hypocritical. 

Researchers have found that British troops sent to Iraq and Afghanistan experience the same rate of mental disorders and post-traumatic stress as civilians. The new report, carried out by the King’s Centre for Military Health, contradicts the long-held view that soldiers are more likely to experience mental health issues or post-traumatic stress disorders than civilians. Professor Neil Greenberg, who helped write the study, spoke to VoR’s Scott Craig about the results.

A complaint has been put before the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the involvement of British forces in systematic torture in Iraq. The allegations have been strenuously denied by the government. The complaint represents thousands of charges of torture and calls for a war crimes investigation, which could put top military chiefs in the dock. We spoke to Carsten Gericke - counselling attorney to the ECCHR, one of the organisations bringing that case to the ICC.

In response to a complaint put before the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the involvement of British forces in systematic torture in Iraq, British Foreign Secretary William Hague on Sunday said: "The UK armed forces do not commit systematic abuse". The complaint represents thousands of charges of torture and calls for a war crimes investigation. General Sir Peter Wall, ex-defence secretary Geoff Hoon and former defence minister Adam Ingram are among those named in the report, according to the Independent on Sunday.
