Practice Relating to Rule 145. Reprisals
During discussions on reprisals in Committee I of the CDDH, the representative of the USSR, opposing the French proposal on a prohibition of reprisals, stated that his delegation was “really concerned with reprisals, and analysis revealed that they contravened the meaning and spirit of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and draft [Additional Protocol I]”. He also stated that the implementation of the French proposal “could in practice lead to far-reaching consequences and could even undermine the basis of international humanitarian law” and that “his delegation took the view that reprisals were inhumane and unjust. They inevitably involved persons who had not participated in the original violation alleged to have taken place, and they mainly affected the civilian population.”
