According to Vice President Kamala Harris, the US has determined that the Russian military is committing crimes against humanity in its invasion of Ukraine.
Harris made the remarks during her speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday.
"The US has formally determined that Russia committed crimes against humanity: From the starting days of this unprovoked war, we have witnessed Russian forces engage in horrendous atrocities and war crimes. Their actions are an assault on our common values, an attack on our common humanity," Harris said.
The conference, which takes place from February 17 to 19, brings together world leaders to discuss pressing international security issues, including the conflict in Ukraine.
