Any intentional attack or targeting of civilians is war crime: Kamala Harris

News

Washington (US): “Any intentional attack or targeting of civilians is a war crime,” said US Vice President Kamala Harris amid Russia’s ongoing military operations in Ukraine.

This comes a day after she called for an international investigation into whether Russia was committing war crimes in Ukraine, CNN reported.

“We are clear that any intentional attack or targeting of civilians is a war crime. Period,” Harris said while speaking in Romania.

The US administration has said that before an official designation on war crimes can be made, an investigation must proceed. 

Russian forces launched military operations in Ukraine on February 24, three days after Moscow recognized Ukraine’s breakaway regions, Donetsk and Luhansk as independent republics followed by the announcement of a “special military operation” to “demilitarize” and “denazify” Ukraine.
