Biden Calls for Russian President Vladimir Putin to Face War Crimes Trial after Bucha Killings

Published

US President Joe Biden has called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be tried for war crimes as evidence emerges of atrocities allegedly committed by Russian forces in Ukraine.

There is mounting international anger over the alleged killing of civilians in Bucha, a town near the capital Kyiv.

“This guy is brutal,” Mr Biden said of the Russian leader, adding that he believes Mr Putin “is a war criminal”.

Without evidence, Russia said images of atrocities had been staged by Ukraine.

Mr Biden’s intervention follows the publication of new satellite photos by the earth observation company Maxar, which show bodies lining Bucha’s streets during its occupation by Russian forces.

An analysis of the photos by the New York Times showed at least 11 bodies on the streets since 11 March, when Russian forces controlled the city.

Russia claims that no civilians suffered under the Russian occupation of Bucha and says footage and photos from the city were staged.

But the timing of these satellite images appears to disprove the idea that the bodies only appeared after Russian soldiers left.
