UN should hold Biden accountable for Middle Eastern conflict — top Russian lawmaker

Vyacheslav Volodin stressed that this issue should be raised in all parliaments across the world, "clearly indicating the culprits of this tragedy"

MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin thinks that the UN has to hold US President Joe Biden liable for the latest escalation of the conflict in the Middle East.

"The tragedy unfolding in the Middle East, where civilians, the elderly, children and women are dying, has a culprit. We have already talked about this but today we will take an official stance. The United States of America is the perpetrator and beneficiary here. <…> In this situation, the United Nations should initiate proceedings against Biden. The UN should raise its head and finally take a stand (as they have taken none thus far), then, perhaps, the conflict will end," the top Russian lawmaker said at a plenary session in the lower house of Russia's parliament while discussing the State Duma’s address to the UN and world parliaments over the escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

He stressed that this issue should be raised in all parliaments across the world, "clearly identifying the culprits of this tragedy." "Biden should be held responsible. Either they (the US - TASS) should stop this, or the UN should hold him liable as a war criminal, as the individual responsible for unleashing this and other conflicts," Volodin added.

The Duma speaker emphasized that since 1945, 80% of all wars waged across the world "have been carried out with the US’ direct participation." "The stocks of the largest US military-industrial companies are growing. They are reaping profits and contracts. It is quite obvious that this conflict should be stopped, otherwise Washington and Brussels will line their pockets," the top legislator noted.
