Russian President Vladimir Putin has been called a war criminal by US President Joe Biden. Although these are not just two words, they have big meanings. Just by saying this, one does not become a war criminal.
In the war between Russia and Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin is constantly being called a war criminal. US President Joe Biden has again called President Putin a war criminal in one of his statements. But do you know who is called a war criminal and who decides whether a person is a war criminal or not? Before proceeding, let us tell you that it is a complicated process.
Allegations against President Putin
Talking about the statement of the US President, he has said this because President Putin is being accused that on his orders, the Russian army is attacking residential buildings by targeting civilians.
Recently, Russia bombed a children’s hospital in which many people were killed and injured. Despite this, no one can be called a war criminal. It has a fixed definition under which one can be called a war criminal.
Explanation of Biden’s statement
White’s press secretary Jen Psaki said that Russia’s relentless attacks on Ukraine sadden Biden about the president’s statement.
That’s why these words came from the depths of his heart. David Crane, who has been the Chief Prosecutor of the United Nations, says that he has politically used this word.
Let us tell you that David has worked on War Crimes for a long time. He was the Chief Prosecutor in a special court set up in Sierra Leone by the UN where the former President of Liberia was tried.
It will be investigated in this manner
Talking about this word, it has often been used by world-class politicians for those people who have taken the lives of common people in attacks ignoring the world fraternity.
As far as President Putin is concerned, about 45 countries of the world, including America, have started the investigation of war crimes against President Putin.
In this, it will be seen how much they followed or violated the rules of war. After this, a proposal will be brought to the United Nations Human Rights Council, and a Commission of Inquiry will be formed to investigate. This work will be done by the International Criminal Court, which is also an independent investigative agency.
