“It’s difficult to look at some of the images and imagine that any well-thinking, serious mature leader would do that. So I can’t talk to his psychology, but I think we can all speak to his depravity” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby on Putin
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby got uncharacteristically emotional and visibly choked up Friday, April 29, 2022, discussing the deaths of innocent Ukrainians — as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said a new mass grave was discovered near Kyiv, the New York Post reported.
He faltered when asked if Russian President Vladimir Putin should be considered a rational leader three months into his ill-advised invasion of Ukraine.
“It’s hard to look at what he’s doing in Ukraine, what his forces are doing in Ukraine, and think that any ethical, moral individual could justify that,” Kirby said.
