US wants to recognize Russia's war in Ukraine as genocide

Influential lawmaker from Democratic party, the head of the US Helsinki Commission, Ben Cardin, stressed that Russia's actions in Ukraine are nothing more than genocide, and this is not limited to the war.

A bipartisan group of high-ranking US senators presented in the Upper House a draft resolution recognizing Russia's actions in Ukraine as genocide of the Ukrainian people. The text of the document is posted on the official website of the Committee on Foreign Relations of the US Senate, Ukrinform reports.

“There is no doubt that what Russia is doing in Ukraine is genocide,” Republican Jim Rish, one of the authors of the resolution, said.< /p>

In this regard, he recalled the crimes committed by the Russian military in Irpen, Gostomel and other Ukrainian cities.

“The international community is documenting Russia's numerous abuses, war crimes throughout Ukraine. It's time for the United States and the world to recognize it as such,” the senator noted.

An influential Democratic legislator, head of the US Helsinki Commission, Senator Ben Cardin stressed that Russia's actions in Ukraine are nothing but genocide, and this is not limited to war.

“Russia is trying to destroy not only people and buildings in Ukraine, but also the Ukrainian language, Ukrainian history and Ukrainian culture. This is genocide. The world must recognize this fact, and those responsible should be held accountable,” Cardin emphasized.

Recall that on April 14, the Verkhovna Rada recognized the Russian war as genocide against Ukraine. The deputies adopted a corresponding resolution.
