US President Joe Biden accuses ‘dictator’ Vladimir Putin of genocide in Ukraine, for the first time.
Joe Biden has accused Russia of carrying out genocide in Ukraine, saying that Vladimir Putin is trying to wipe out the idea of even being Ukrainian.
For the first time, US President Joe Biden has been consistently outspoken in denouncing Russian wholesale killing of Ukrainian civilians, labelling Putin as a ‘war criminal’ in mid-March.
Multiple investigations are under way into Russian atrocities in Ukraine, which include the razing of Mariupol and the executions of civilians in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha.
Biden first used the word in passing on Tuesday at a domestic policy event in Iowa about the use of ethanol in petrol.
