Merrick Garland, the U.S. attorney general, is reportedly in Ukraine for a previously unannounced visit. Garland is meeting with Ukraine's prosecutor-general, Iryna Venediktova, to discuss the effort to identify war crimes committed since Russia's unprovoked invasion of its southwestern neighbor on Feb. 24 and the apprehension of suspects, according to a USA Today report .

He was sentenced to life in prison.
