US President Biden calls to put Putin on trial for war crimes over Russia killings in Ukraine
President of the United States Joe Biden called for evidence to be gathered to put Russian leader Vladimir Putin on trial for war crimes related to his nation’s invasion of Ukraine.
“He is a war criminal,” Biden said of Putin, on the heels of reports of mass killings of civilians by Russian-controlled troops in the town of Bucha, northwest of Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv.
“This guy is brutal, and what’s happening in Bucha is outrageous, and everyone’s seen it,” Biden told reporters, a day after video and still images revealed the town’s streets littered with dead bodies.
“I think it is a war crime. … He should be held accountable.”
