President Joe Biden said Wednesday that he believes Russian leader Vladimir Putin “is a war criminal” for his attacks on Ukraine.

It appears to be the first time that Biden has publicly branded Putin with that phrase.

Biden’s comment came hours after Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., said the president “absolutely” should call Putin a war criminal, given Russia’s attacks on “hospitals, maternity wards, apartment buildings” In Ukraine, and his military “direct fire on civilians.”
