VP Harris says should be UN ‘investigation’, rather than declare Russia committed War Crimes

Horrific photos circulated Wednesday after a maternity and children’s hospital was bombed in the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol. Officials said at least three people, including a young girl were killed in the strike.

U.K. armed forces minister James Heappey said Thursday the “indiscriminate” fire by Russia on the health facility “is a war crime.” U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who has already been chastised for her subpar diplomatic performance in Poland was asked about the crime.

Speaking alongside Poland’s president on Thursday in Warsaw, Harris did admit reference the attack on the hospital and said the world was witnessing “atrocities in unimaginable proportions in Ukraine.” Her words, though, lacked depth and meaning. “We stand with the people of Ukraine” said Harris, saying America has an “ironclad” commitment to defend NATO nations.

When it came to being asked a question of substance, Harris refuses to take a moral stand. When asked if she believed Russia’s actions should be investigated as possible war crimes, she passed the responsibility on to the United Nations.

Saying “when it comes to crimes and violations of international norms” the U.S. is “clear that any intentional attack on innocent victims is a violation.” She added the United Nations has an established process to determine whether war crimes have been committed and “absolutely there should be an investigation. The eyes of the world are on this war and what Russia has done.”

Russian officials made an unbelievable claim that the hospital was not a children’s or maternity hospital, but an extremist base.

“It is not the first time we have seen pathetic outcries concerning the so-called atrocities” by Russia, Lavrov said, claiming the hospital was being used as a base by an “ultra-radical” Ukrainian battalion. He said Russia had submitted data to the United Nations “days ago” to prove its claim, and accused foreign media of manipulating information on the strike. Lavrov claimed no patients or staff had been at the facility, which he insisted had “long ago become a base for extremists.”

Zelensky said “this topic was mentioned on Russian TV, but not a word of truth was said. The Russians were lied to that there had been no patients in the hospital and no women or children ion the maternity hospital.”

“The Russian were lied to that ‘nationalists’ had allegedly taken up positions there. They lie confidently, as always” said Zelensky.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
