According to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Russian crimes in Ukraine increase by the hour. The attacks hit hospitals, schools and residential buildings, and the minister said in a video address to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Blinken called the council’s emergency debate on Ukraine on Thursday an “important step” if an international investigation into the violations in Ukraine is expected to be decided.
The minister insisted on the need to send the “resolute and united” message that “Russian President Putin must stop this unconditionally.”
If Putin succeeds in overthrowing the democratically elected Ukrainian government in Kyiv, the humanitarian crisis and the human rights situation “will only get worse,” Blinken further warned.
