Vice President Joe Biden has called Russia’s activities in Ukraine “genocide” and believes Vladimir Putin is trying to “wipe out the idea of being able to be an ethnic Ukrainian”.

A dictator’s declaration of war and genocide half-way across the world should not have any bearing on a family’s budget or capacity to fill up the tank, Vice President Biden said in a speech to Iowa voters on rising gas costs.

Fearing intervention under an international convention on genocide, US politicians have traditionally avoided using the word “genocide.” This is no longer the case.

Instead of reversing course, President Biden went even further when he addressed the media before boarding Air Force One: “As the evidence piles up, I’ve decided to call it genocide because it’s becoming increasingly clear that Vladimir Putin is simply trying to eradicate the concept of being Ukrainian.

“It appears that way to me,” he remarked, “but we’ll let the lawyers decide globally.”

“True words of a true leader,” Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in response to the speech.

Defeating evil requires, in his words, “calling things by their proper names.”

The United States has been a tremendous help thus far, but we urgently require more heavy weaponry to stop more Russian atrocities.”

Russian military have allegedly been killing and raping citizens in the area around Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city, despite the fact that they have since evacuated the area.

All of these allegations have been refuted by the Russian government.

Russian military have sent mobile cremation equipment to dispose of remains in Mariupol, says the city’s mayor, Vadym Boychenko. A defence official has claimed that the United States is considering a fresh aid package for Ukraine that might total $750 million.

The $800 million package agreed a month ago is expected to be delivered this week. A total of almost 10 million Ukrainians, including approximately two-thirds of the country’s children, have fled their homes. Bucha and other Kyiv suburbs have seen at least 720 deaths, with more than 200 individuals still unaccounted for, according to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry.

• It has been reported that Russia is willing to sell oil and other petroleum products to “friendly countries” at any price. Ukraine’s appeal on Western nations to boycott Russian oil and gas comes at the same time.

Even in the face of heavy Ukrainian resistance and significant Russian losses, Mr. Putin has declared that his country’s attack in Ukraine will continue until its objectives are achieved.

As of Tuesday, Ukraine claimed it was examining a claim that deadly substances had been used against its forces in the eastern Donbas region.
Ukraine’s SBU secret service has detained Viktor Medvedchuk in a special operation, according to the country’s officials.

He is a former leader of a pro-Russian opposition party, and he is a close buddy of Vladimir Putin.

Mr Zelenskyy stated on Tuesday night that if Moscow freed Ukrainians imprisoned in Russian prisons, Ukraine could liberate Mr Medvedchuk.

When the battle started, he posted a picture of Mr Medvedchuk in handcuffs and a camouflage uniform with a Ukrainian flag patch on social media.
