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.

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago

The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.

The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57%  the preceding quarter.

The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.

592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:

They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.

Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
