Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the U.S. cannot become “numb” to images of death and destruction in Ukraine, vowing “accountability” for war crimes. “You can’t help but see these images as a punch to the gut,” Blinken said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday. He was reacting to photos out of Bucha, Ukraine, near Kyiv, showing photos of civilian men who were reportedly executed and left on the streets, according to the city’s mayor. Blinken said the U.S. is documenting any potential war crimes and vowed “accountability.” RUSSIA INVADES UKRAINE: LIVE UPDATES”We’ve said before Russia’s aggression that we thought it was likely that they would commit atrocities.
