“Your family budget, your ability to refuel, none of this should depend on a dictator declaring war and committing genocide on the other side of the world.” President Biden said Tuesday while visiting Iowa.

Referring to atrocities against civilians, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky previously accused Russian forces of genocide. However, this term has not yet been used by the US government. That President Biden did so on Tuesday did not go unnoticed in the Kremlin.

“This statement is unacceptable,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. This is not acceptable to the President of the United States. We view this as an attempt to change the situation.”

The United States defends Biden

The US State Department has now defended Biden’s accusation. “I would expect that what President Biden has called is what we will eventually find when we can gather all the evidence,” Under Secretary for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland said on CNN. “Because what is happening there is no accident. It is a deliberate decision of Russia, by its armed forces, to destroy Ukraine and its civilian population.”

But at the moment, there is no question of conducting a special investigation. The United States supports international lawyers looking into this matter.

Macron rejects talk of “genocide”

For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron refused to talk about genocide. “I want to be careful in such terms today,” he said, “because these two peoples (the Russians and the Ukrainians) are brothers.” Macron said the “rhetorical escalation” could derail the peace process.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who thanked Biden for using the term “genocide,” condemned Macron’s refusal. “Things like this are very painful for us,” Zelensky said at a press conference, “so I will definitely do everything in my power to discuss this with him.”
