Joe Biden calls Putin a “war criminal” in the strongest condemnation yet

So far more than three million people have fled Ukraine from the Russian invasion.


President Joe Biden called his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin a “criminal war” on Tuesday over a bloody invasion of neighboring Ukraine.

“I think it’s a criminal war,” Biden told reporters.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden was “speaking from the heart” after watching “barbaric actions by a savage dictator through the invasion of a foreign country” on television.

Putin ordered a large-scale invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago, saying Russia wants to force the disarmament of the Ukrainian army and overthrow the Western government.

The Ukrainian army, backed by large Western arms flows, has resisted, largely halting Russia’s progress. Russian troops have increasingly resorted to civilian bombings, prompting three million Ukrainians to become refugees.
