US President Joe Biden, in a conversation with journalists, called for the creation of a military tribunal on the situation in Ukrainian Bucha. A video of his speech was published by C-SPAN.
“We must continue to supply Ukraine with the weapons they need to keep fighting. And we have to gather all the details so that this can become a real war crimes trial,”” said the American president.
He also once again called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal.” According to Biden, the United States will continue to impose sanctions against Russia.
Answering a journalist's question whether what happened in Bucha could be considered “genocide”, he replied: “No, I think this is a war crime.”
RBC sent a request to the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov.
The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commenting on Biden's words about the military tribunal, said that the proceedings should begin with the bombing of Yugoslavia. “You can still find the main directors of productions in Srebrenica. And, of course, the organ trade in Kosovo under the guise of American officials. As soon as they finish, they can immediately start nuclear bombing of Japan, — she wrote in Telegram.
Photos from Bucha, Kiev region, began to be distributed by the Ukrainian authorities and Western media the day before. Reuters reported that the photographs showed the bodies of local residents. The mayor of the city Anatoly Fedoruk, in a conversation with AFP, said that these people were shot dead. The Ministry of Defense called the published materials a provocation and explained that the Russian military left the city on March 30 and were not involved in the killings of residents. As the department said, while the Russian military controlled the city, “not a single local resident was harmed.”
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the video and photos from Buchi has signs of video fraud and fakes, as evidenced by the calendar sequence of events. The Foreign Ministry noted that the statements of the West about the situation in the city and the fact that they were made “literally in the first minutes of the appearance of these materials” leave no doubt “who ordered this story.” The European Union said it was ready to send investigators to Bucha to “document” war crimes.
This is not the first time Biden has called Putin a “war criminal”. In the Kremlin, his words were previously called unacceptable and unforgivable rhetoric. Later, the Foreign Ministry told US Ambassador John Sullivan that such statements by Biden “put Russian-American relations on the verge of breaking.”
