US: ‘Very Credible’ Evidence of War Crimes in Ukraine
The U.S. has seen “very credible” evidence of war crimes in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Secretary of State Antony Blinken says.
Blinken’s comments came during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, wherein he told host Jake Tapper: “[W]e’ve seen very credible reports of deliberate attacks on civilians, which would constitute a war crime.”
“What we’re doing right now is documenting all of this, putting it all together, looking at it, and making sure that as people and the appropriate organizations and institutions investigate whether war crimes have been or are being committed, that we can support whatever they’re doing,” Blinken added.
“They’re very credible. And we’re documenting everything.”
Last week, the International Criminal Court said it has launched an investigation into allegations of war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide committed in Ukraine.
