US accuses Russia of concentration camps

US authorities have accused Russia of sending Ukrainians to “concentration camps” in areas it has captured in Ukraine.
U.S. Representative to the United Nations (UN) Linda Thomas-Greenfield claimed that 1.6 million people were forcibly sent to or from Russian-controlled parts of Ukraine, demanding full UN access to these regions. The Russian front, on the other hand, denied the accusations and argued that Ukrainians lived in these regions “freely and voluntarily”. White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre repeated the claim at the daily press conference and said, “We have intelligence that Russia has concentration camps in eastern Ukraine and western Russia, where it arrests, interrogates and sometimes abuses thousands of Ukrainians.”


On the other hand, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken made a surprise visit to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, yesterday. While this is Blinken’s second visit to Kyiv since the beginning of the war, the US minister reportedly wanted to make the visit, which was kept secret for security reasons, at the time when Ukraine began a counter-attack.
