Pentagon spokesman says Putin has ‘blood on his hands’

The Pentagon on Friday (March 11) said the Russian invasion of Ukraine was an unprovoked ‘war of choice that could be stopped at any time.”

With the war in its third week and the death toll, refugees and destruction climbing, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters “all of this is by his (Putin’s) choice and all that blood is on his hands and he could stop it right now if he wanted to.”

Kirby added the United States is confident with the strategic deterrent posture in place should Russia make moves to use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.

Since the invasion, Western countries have swiftly moved to isolate Russia from the global financial system.
