Medvedev focuses on US wars amidst Ukraine crisis

Former Russian President and current Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev referred to international calls for a tribunal for Russian war crimes as ''delusional'' on his VKontakte account, a Russian version of Facebook.

Medvedev also brought into question the legitimacy of American authority when it comes to international justice, given that, according to him, the United States ''has murdered over 20 million people in 37 nations since WWII.'' Specifically, he spoke about former wars waged by the US, mentioning wars in Vietnam, Korea, former Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, as well as the US nuclear bombing of Japan during World War II.

The Russian official also expressed his doubt about whether the US is a true democracy, while the war in Ukraine continues.
