The United States has accused Russia of committing crimes against humanity in Ukraine. Vice President Kamala Harris made the announcement while speaking at a press conference on Thursday.
The US claims that Russia has been responsible for a number of human rights violations in Ukraine, including the persecution of ethnic Ukrainians, the use of torture, and the displacement of thousands of people.
The US statement comes after a series of reports from international organizations, including the United Nations and the European Union, which found evidence of human rights abuses in Ukraine.
The US has called on Russia to end its human rights violations in Ukraine and to take steps to ensure that those responsible are held accountable.
The US has also urged other countries to join in its condemnation of Russia’s actions in Ukraine.
The US statement has been met with a mixed response from the international community. While some have welcomed the US stance, others have questioned the timing and the motives behind the announcement.
Meanwhile, the conflict in Ukraine continues to cause suffering for thousands of people. The US has urged all parties to work towards a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
