The United States has seen “very credible reports of deliberate attacks on civilians” in Ukraine at the hands of Russian forces, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Sunday.
“We’ve seen very credible reports of deliberate attacks on civilians which would constitute a war crime. We’ve seen very credible reports about the use of certain weapons,” Blinken told CNN’s Jake Tapper during an interview.
The British Ministry of Defence has said on Saturday that the Russian offensive is targeting civilians to try and break morale.
“What we’re doing right now is documenting all of this, putting it all together, looking at it and making sure that, as people and the appropriate organizations and institutions investigate whether war crimes have been or are being committed,” Blinken said. “They’re very credible and we’re documenting everything.”
