Biden calls Putin a war criminal for invading Ukraine|

 Although the White House previously stopped short of accusing the Russians of war crimes in the Ukraine, President Joe Biden said to reporters on Wednesday: “I think [Putin] is a war criminal.” and announced an additional $800 million in security assistance for Ukraine, including weapons to take down Russian planes and tanks. “The President’s remarks speak for themselves,” press secretary Jen Psaki said afterward. She said Biden was “speaking from the heart.” She said the ongoing investigation at the State Department into war crimes was still underway.

Kremlin spokesman Dimitry Peskov said Biden’s remark was unforgivable.
