President Biden reiterated his earlier claim that he considers Russian President Vladimir Putin to be a war criminal. "You may remember I got criticized for calling Putin a war criminal," he told the press after arriving at the White House on Marine One. "Well, the truth of the matter — you saw what happened in Bucha. This warrants him — he is a war criminal." Simultaneously, the European Union put out a statement condemning Russian atrocities committed in Bucha and other liberated Ukrainian towns. "The Russian authorities are responsible for these atrocities committed while they had effective control of the area," the statement reads. "They are subject to the international law of occupation...The perpetrators of war crimes and other serious violations as well as the responsible government officials and military leaders will be held accountable."
