Abstract

The study aimed to identifying the scenario of future foresight to solve the problem of the Russian-Ukrainian war under international humanitarian law. The study relied on the descriptive analytical approach. The study reached a set of results and recommendations, the most important of which are as follows: (1) The Russian-Ukrainian war resulted in many war crimes, outrageous attacks on lives, mass massacres, in addition to rape, which in itself is an attack on international humanitarian law that works to protect human rights everywhere in the world. (2) The continuation of the conflicts between Russia and Ukraine cannot be condoned due to its negative side that has its effects on the world in general. This indicates a general tendency between countries to reach a middle scenario that gets rid of the effects of the political and economic war and loss of life and creates a point of understanding in the relations between the two countries.

ملخص البحث
هدفت الدراسة إلى  التعرف على سيناريو استشراف المستقبل لحل مشكلة الحرب الروسية الأوكرانية في ظل القانون الدولي الإنساني، وقد اعتمدت الدراسة على المنهج الوصفي التحليلي، وتوصلت الدراسة إلى مجموعة من النتائج والتوصيات من أهمها ما يلي: (1) أسفرت الحرب الروسية الأوكرانية عن العديد من جرائم الحرب والاعتداءات السافرة على الأرواح، والمذابح الجماعية، بالإضافة إلى جرائم الإغتصاب، وذلك في حد ذاته يعد اعتداءً على القانون الدولي الإنساني الذي يعمل على حماية حقوق الإنسان في كل مكان في العالم. (2) إن استمرار الصراعات بين روسيا وأوكرانيا لا يمكن التغاضي عنه لما يمثله من جانب سلبي يترك تأثيراته على العالم بشكل عام، وذلك يشير إلى اتجاه عام بين الدول للوصول إلى سيناريو وسط يتخلص من أثار الحرب السياسية والاقتصادية وخسائر الأرواح ويخلق نقطة تفاهم في العلاقات بين الدولتين.
