Russian rocket ship launches flurry of Kalibr cruise missiles towards Ukrainian targets.

The Kremlin has released footage claiming to show the dramatic launch of seven Kalibr cruise missiles from a Russian rocket ship.

The low-res, grainy video shows a series of lights streaking skywards before cutting to apparently show the launches from the ship.

The footage was released without a statement and only under the heading, in Russian, 'Launches of Kalibr missiles from a small rocket ship' - from the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) on Tuesday and said that the missiles were aimed at "targets in Ukraine".

'Kalibr' is understood to be a to the 3M-54 Kalibr family of Russian cruise missiles, which are typically launched from warships and submarines.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, ordered Russia to halt its invasion of Ukraine and remove its troops. Russia has ignored this order.

Former British Prime Ministers Sir John Major and Gordon Brown have called for the creation of a Nuremberg-style international tribunal to investigate Russian President Vladimir Putin, former Prime Minister David Cameron has said "Putin belongs in a war crimes tribunal", and current UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said "Vladimir Putin has already crossed the red line into barbarism".

The tribunal proposal has also been signed by other figures, including Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and American lawyer Benjamin Ferencz, who is 102 years old and who prosecuted Nazi war criminals during the Nuremberg Trials after Adolf Hitler's defeat.

Ferencz obtained death sentences against members of SS mobile death squads called the Einsatzgruppen who committed atrocities in Eastern Europe between 1941 and 1945, killing 2 million people, 1.3 million of them Jews.

And US President Joe Biden also called for Putin to be put on trial for war crimes on Monday.
