Poland insists on an international investigation into genocide in Ukraine

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called for the establishment of an international commission of inquiry into the “genocide committed by the Russian army in Ukrainian cities, including Bucha,” AFP reported.

“The bloody massacres perpetrated by Russians, by Russian soldiers, deserve to be called by their real names. This is genocide and it must be brought to justice. That is why we are proposing to set up an international commission of inquiry to investigate this crime of genocide, “said the Polish Prime Minister.

Poland will also come up with a proposal for additional new sanctions following revelations over the past two days of mass graves of civilians documented by Ukrainian authorities and indiscriminate killings by the Russian military as it withdrew to Donetsk and Luhansk. We will submit a proposal to the EU to impose sanctions on all members of the United Russia political party, Prime Minister Moravetsky was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

According to the agency, at the end of 2021, more than 2.3 million people are members of the ruling United Russia party.

“At the last European Council, we also proposed sanctions against all members of the United Russia party,” the Polish prime minister explained.

Earlier, it was announced that the EU would discuss imposing additional sanctions on Russia on April 6th.

Meanwhile, the head of the Russian Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, ordered today to launch an investigation into “deliberately spread deliberately false information from Ukraine” about the actions of the Russian armed forces in Bucha, Reuters reported, citing a statement from the institution. And Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the video footage of corpsed streets of Bucha distributed by Ukrainian authorities and many international media “fake news.” Speaking to reporters, he questioned the authenticity of the documented victims and said “it must be checked” very carefully to see if the footage was forged. ”

Biden: Putin should be tried for war crimes

US President Joe Biden has called for evidence to be gathered so that Russian President Vladimir Putin can be tried for war crimes, NBC reported.

“He is a war criminal,” Biden told Putin after photos of the bodies of dead civilians appeared on the streets of the city of Bucha, near the capital Kyiv.

“He is brutal. What happened in Bucha is scandalous. “Everyone saw it,” Biden told reporters. “I think this is a war crime… He must be held accountable,” he added.

Biden also said the United States was preparing additional sanctions against Russia but did not give details.

“I will let you know,” he said after a reporter asked him about the nature of the expected sanctions.

U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told White House reporters that the sanctions would be announced this week.

“Russia will pay a heavy price. “We have coordinated our actions with our allies and partners, and I will not go into details now,” he said.

Earlier on Monday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russian forces of committing genocide, saying Ukrainians had been “destroyed and exterminated”.

The mayor of Bucha said about 300 city residents had been killed while Chechen fighters controlled the area.

Russia has denied allegations that its troops killed civilians in Bucha, with the country’s defense ministry calling the allegations a “provocation”.
