On Friday, the US Defense Department darned the behavior of Russian military forces in Ukraine. John Kirby, the U.S. Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs told the media that it is very apparent Putin-led troops have committed ‘war crimes,’ and there are no ifs, and, or buts. But on the other hand, Moscow has rejected targeting civilians during its military movement in the embattled country.

The Pentagon spokesman blamed Vladimir Putin, Russian President, for brutality & depravity in his more than two-month-old all-out incursion of Ukraine. Kirby told the media that it’s ‘brutality of the coldest’ and the ‘most depraved sort.’
He said that he doesn’t think they fully honored the extent to which he’d visit that kind of ferocity and brutality and, as he stated, depravity, on innocent Ukrainians, on non-combatants, with such absolute disrespect for the lives Putin was taking. Moreover, Kirby commented on how Washington miscalculated the depth of the Russian President’s callousness toward the people of Ukraine.
The Pentagon has blamed Russia’s Putin for acting with immorality in his brutal incursion of the East European country. As a result, the U.S. Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs became noticeably emotional as he enquired how anyone ‘decent’ could defend the barbarity committed by Russian military forces. But, Anatoly Antonov, Russian Ambassador to the U.S., has denied the allegation. Additionally, he pronounced Kirby’s remarks as aggressive and intolerable.
Additional US Support for Ukrainians
On April 29, Ukraine’s Zelenskyy said he was still available for peace negotiations with Russia’s Putin. While talking with the reporters in Poland, the President of Ukraine said he looked for to holding a meeting with Vladimir Putin because a single personality decides everything in Russian Federation.
On April 28, Ukraine launched a hunt for ten Russian personnel blamed for committing ‘war crimes’ in Bucha, a city in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv Oblast, where non-combatants and civilians were raped, tortured, and killed.
Furthermore, now over two months into the brutal conflict, American President Joe Biden has requested Congress for a further USD 33 billion in security, humanitarian and financial support Ukrainian people and forces.
