Abstract
The study aims to describe the priorities of the International Criminal Court in the field of investigation of war crimes at the present stage, as well as to conduct a comprehensive international legal analysis of the Rome Statute and the practice of the International Criminal Court in its jurisdiction. The study used such special legal scientific methods as historical-legal, comparative legal and formal legal. The study analyses the legal issues of liability for war crimes from a theoretical and practical standpoint. It was determined that it is extremely
important for Ukraine to establish closer cooperation with the International Criminal Court in order to bring to justice war criminals. To improve the functioning of the International Criminal Court, its members must create a safe environment for victims of crime, as well as assist it in executing arrest warrants and contributing to the compensation system for victims of crime.
