The United States Senate approved in complete accordance a resolution to seek investigations of Russian President Putin and his strategic planning for a war against Ukraine on 24th February 2022.
United States Senate from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham states the Senate heavily criticized the brutality and war crimes of Putin as crimes against humanity and the Russian forces are pawns under his directive. Now it gives full permission to international criminal courts to probe into Putin, his military leadership and his security council for carrying out war crimes.
Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer said, “Putin’s brutal invasion will be investigated, he will not escape these trials.”
In a swift and without any further delay, this move was approved later on Tuesday as Lawmakers in Congress were voting for a strong blow to Putin for his brutal offensive against Ukraine.
Almost two weeks ago, the Senate resolution did not carry any weight however, the turn of events made Congress going all out to support Biden Administration to take a strict stance when it came to Putin’s brutality.
United States, VP Kamala Harris last week, welcomed calls for an investigation of Vladimir Putin at international criminal courts for all the bombings and shelling including bringing down a maternity hospital in Ukraine.
It’s a great moment to see a bipartisan (Democrats and Republicans) measure of the resolution being approved by Senators. The resolution states that the Senate condemns Vladimir Putin, his Security Council, the Russian Federation, members of military leadership and others who have violated the international peace and stability in the form of brutal atrocities against Ukraine.
