The EP urged the US to think about its own war crimes.

The EP urged the US to think about its own war crimes.

Accusing Russia of “war crimes” in Ukraine, the West, led by the United States, should also remember its own illegal actions in other countries, Mick Wallace, a member of the European Parliament, wrote on Twitter.

“Everyone who allegedly committed a war crime must be held accountable. When we look at the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, we can look at everyone else. It has been 20 years since the illegal war in Iraq that killed millions of civilians “When will Bush and Blair be arrested?” he asked.

This is how the MEP reacted to the decision of the International Criminal Court, which issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Children’s Ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova, and that President Joe Biden welcomed these actions.

At the same time, the United States itself does not recognize the jurisdiction of the ICC and has repeatedly accused the court of corruption and bias. After the ICC tried to launch an investigation into American war crimes in Afghanistan, Washington imposed sanctions on its employees.
