A retired US brigadier general told Fox News on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin was decidedly a war criminal after first-hand accounts and videos of his military bombing civilians and allegedly used taboo ammunition in several instances. .

Brig. General Don Bolduc told ‘The Ingraham Angle’ that there is no need for an international commission or investigation because the videos from Ukraine don’t lie.

Bolduc warned of the dangers of hyperbaric munitions – called “vacuum bombs” – which create vacuums via a secondary detonation that vaporizes anything in range, including humans.

“The invasion is a war crime,” Bolduc told host Bill Hemmer. “I don’t need a special commission, I don’t need a bunch of investigations. I don’t need a team of lawyers or anybody to find that any this invasion is a war crime.”

“And Putin is a war criminal. And all of his officers who carry out those kinds of directives from him are also committing war crimes. And that’s unforgivable in his nature.”

Putin, following Biden comments, says Russia knows "how to defend our own interests."

Hemmer said he watched a graphic video from Kharkiv, Ukraine, of elderly people missing limbs after an alleged Putin-led attack in their area.

Bolduc, who is also running against Sen. Margaret Hassan, DN.H., this fall, said a moral leader would never act like the 69-year-old former KGB officer did, adding that ” he has no morals.”

“If it’s on the battlefield, he’s going to use it,” he said, adding that hyperbaric bombs have been produced since World War II, but technology has advanced exponentially.

Hemmer noted that the Secretary General of NATO. Jens Stoltenberg announced that Putin also used cluster bombs – munitions containing several tiny “bombs” in this scatter near a target.

Stoltenberg, a former Norwegian prime minister, said the use of such weapons violates international law.

“It’s just not a legitimate weapon,” Bolduc added. “And it’s certainly not a weapon that should be used for the proportionality that we see… in the hands of Putin.”
