Putin officially declared war criminal by unanimous vote after waging barbaric Ukraine war

Date:


The resolution was introduced by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and was backed by both main political parties in the Senate.

It was backed by the International Criminal Court (ICC), based in The Hague.

Chuck Schumer, Democratic Senate Majority Leader, expressed a show of solidarity from the typically divided chamber.

He told senators just prior to the vote that Vladimir Putin “cannot escape accountability” for the actions perpetrated against the Ukrainian people.

He said: “All of us in this chamber joined together, with Democrats and Republicans, to say that Vladimir Putin cannot escape accountability for the atrocities committed against the Ukrainian people.”

This comes after Justice Secretary Dominic Raab visited the ICC in The Netherlands to volunteer the UK’s assistance in collating evidence against Putin for possible war crimes in Ukraine.

He traveled to the court to offer “technical support in bringing those responsible for war crimes in Ukraine to justice”.
