This shows that the free world still doesn’t yet take seriously the threat posed by the nuclear-armed dictator. Putin is a war criminal, but for now an untouchable one, and an alleged accessory to the mass murders of scores of Ukrainians.

Putin prosecuted the invasion of Ukraine’s Crimea by disguising the identity of his troops and denying their presence, countenancing the use of women and children as human shields as well as the torture of captives kidnapped by Russian-backed troops and militias.

According to Ukraine’s top law enforcers on April 3, Putin also played a role in the mass murders of EuroMaidan Revolution protesters, more than 100 of whom were killed, allegedly under orders by overthrown President Viktor Yanukovych. The Russian government sent 30 agents of its KGB successor and supplied five tons of grenades and ammunition for Yanukovych’s war against his own people. Now Putin harbors Yanukovych and an untold number of former high Ukrainian officials implicated in the murders, shielding the fugitives from justice.
