U.S. State Department Formally Accuses Russia Of War Crimes


Of course they would, wouldn’t they?

According to the latest reports, the U.S. State Department has formally accused Russia of committing war crimes during its invasion of Ukraine.

Among the list of alleged humanitarian crimes, the State Department specifically cites the bombing of the Mariupol maternity hospital.

Blinken’s allegations come amid Russian allegations of U.S. funded bioweapon research facilities in Ukraine.

Whether or not these crimes against humanity actually occurred, or whether or not Russian forces were responsible for the attack remains to be seen, as the U.S. government has a long history of making false claims as a pretense for war.

Anyone who remembers the Iraq war can testify to this…

Here are the latest developments:

Antony Blinken’s claims appeared in The Epoch Times :

“Today, I can announce that, based on information currently available, the U.S. government assesses that members of Russia’s forces have committed war crimes in Ukraine,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

“Our assessment is based on a careful review of available information from public and intelligence sources,” he said.

Blinken didn’t provide specific evidence for the claim. Russia hasn’t issued a public response, although Moscow previously denied claims that its forces committed war crimes.

Fox News adds:

President Biden initially declined to call Putin a “war criminal” when asked by Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich on March 16, but circled back around 30 seconds later and said “Did you ask me whether I would call… Oh, I, I think he is a war criminal.”

Blinken said on March 17 that he personally agrees with President Biden on his assessment of Putin as a war criminal.
