Ukraine: Russia’s attacks on civilians deliberate – US

25

Contrary to Russia’s claims that it was not targeting civilians in its ongoing invasion of Ukraine, the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, said, on Sunday, that there were “very credible reports” indicating that Russia’s attacks on Ukrainian civilians were deliberate.

“We’ve seen very credible reports of deliberate attacks on civilians which would constitute a war crime,” Blinken said.

“We’ve seen very credible reports about the use of certain weapons.

“What we’re doing right now is documenting all of this, putting this all together, looking at it and making sure that as people and the appropriate organisations and institutions investigate whether war crimes have been or are being committed that we can support whatever they are doing,” he added.
