The White House spokeswoman added that the Department of State is studying cases of “war crimes” of the Russian Federation as part of the ongoing “legal process.”
Russia’s actions are inexcusable in the eyes of other states, White House press secretary Jen Psaki argued, commenting on the reaction of the press secretary of the head of the Russian state Dmitry Peskov to the impermissible statements about Vladimir Putin by U.S. President Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, the American leader, answering a corresponding question from a journalist, said that he considers Putin a “war criminal.” In turn, Peskov stressed that “Mr. Biden’s statements are absolutely impermissible, unacceptable, and inexcusable.”
At a regular briefing at the White House, Psaki, commenting on the words of Putin’s press secretary, argued that Russia is “a country whose actions are inexcusable in the eyes of the world, the world community.”
She was also asked to provide details of the U.S. administration’s ongoing investigation into “war crimes” in Ukraine. The spokeswoman said that the Department of State, as part of the ongoing “legal process”, is studying such cases of “war crimes” as the explosion of the theater building in Mariupol, attacks on civilians in hospitals and maternity hospitals. “Any information and data we collect will be transferred to international bodies that have prosecuted war criminals in the past, that’s where this information will go. It is not the United States that will deal with this, but international institutions. Therefore, we will continue to provide information on this issue,” the spokeswoman said.
