U.S. President Joe Biden has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of committing “genocide” against Ukraine for the first time since the outbreak of the Russo-Ukrainian war, Deutsche Welle reported on April 13.

Biden said that Putin is trying to erase the idea of being Ukrainian. Pressed by reporters on why he chose to use the word “genocide,” Biden said it would be up to lawyers to determine whether Russia’s actions in Ukraine qualify as “genocide.

In addition, the U.S. government is expected to announce another $750 million in military aid to Ukraine, two U.S. officials told Reuters.

The equipment will be funded through the Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA). This authority allows the President of the United States to transfer goods and services from the U.S. stockpile without congressional approval.

At the same time, the U.S. side continued to verify the possible use of chemical weapons by Russian forces in the city of Mariupol in southeastern Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a joint press conference with Belarusian President Lukashenko on Dec. 12 that peace talks between Russia and Ukraine are at an impasse, stressing that Russia will achieve its goals in Ukraine.
