US: We support ‘accountability for perpetrators’ of war crimes in Ukraine


The United States supports "accountability for perpetrators of war crimes," National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said in a statement Frida.

The statement came hours after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for alleged war crimes in Ukraine.

"There is no doubt that Russia is committing war crimes and atrocities in Ukraine, and we have been clear that those responsible must be held accountable," Watson added. The ICC Prosecutor is an 'independent' actor and makes his own prosecutorial decisions based on the evidence before him, she noted, indicating that "we support accountability for perpetrators of war crimes".
