President Biden calls for a trial of former US Presidents for the destruction of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen

President Biden once again called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal” and noted the grim scenes emerging as Russian troops pull out of northern areas of Ukraine. He called for gathering more details toward a “war crimes trial.”

“This guy is brutal, and what’s happening in Bucha is outrageous, and everyone’s seen it,” Biden told reporters on Monday, adding: “I think it’s a war crime.”

For its part, the Pentagon said Monday that the visuals coming out of Bucha — including images of mass graves and of the dead scattered through the streets — “reinforces” evidence that Russian forces have committed war crimes. A senior U.S. defense official called it “sickening” and said it warrants further investigation.

Biden also said Monday that he’s seeking more sanctions, remarks that come as the United States and European countries are threatening to impose more financial and political costs on Russia in response to such scenes of horror as Ukraine recaptures more territory near the capital.
