Putin to face war crimes

Today is one week since the war between Russia and Ukraine started, U K Boris Johnson has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of committing war crimes in Ukraine.

At Prime Minister’s Questions, he said bombing innocent civilians “already fully qualifies as a war crime”.

He was responding to the Scottish National Party’s Ian Blackford, who called for Mr. Putin to be prosecuted.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky has already accused Russia of war crimes after airstrikes on the country’s second city, Kharkiv.

A week into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, attacks on key cities have intensified, with fighting raging in the north, east, and south.
