U.S. ambassador to the United Nations: Russia has committed war crimes

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said in an interview with James Menendez of BBC Newshour on Thursday that Russia has committed "war crimes" and that civilian attacks "cannot be justified."

Linda Thomas-Greenfield: You know, this is the question that we’re being asked every day, and we’re working with others in the international community to document the crimes that Russia is committing against the Ukrainian people. They constitute war crimes; there are attacks on civilians that cannot be justified by any – in any way whatsoever. I still see images of a women being rolled out of a hospital, pregnant, bleeding, people screaming, children crying. It is just unconscionable. And we call on Russia to change course. They have to end this conflict, and they have to stop the fighting, and they have to return to diplomacy. And we have made clear our strong support for Ukrainians’ call for this to stop.
