The Senate on Tuesday passed a non-binding resolution supporting a war crimes investigation into Russian President Vladimir Putin amid his invasion of Ukraine. 

The resolution, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham, passed by voice vote. 

In a statement, Graham said that he was “very excited” that the resolution passed and that the U.S. “should do all we can to aid this investigation by providing information and intelligence to the court in a timely manner.” 

“The next step for me is to work with our British allies and hopefully others to create an intel cell that will make available to the public Russian military units engaged in war crimes and start naming their commanders,” he added. “A name-and-shame campaign is in the making.” 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer added that the Senate joined together “to say that Vladimir Putin cannot escape accountability for the atrocities committed against the Ukrainian people.” 

“The legislation passing today, championed by Senator Graham, sends an unmistakable message that the U.S. Senate stands with Ukraine, stands against Putin, and stands with all efforts to hold Putin accountable for the atrocities levied upon the Ukrainian people,” he added. 

As reported by The Hill, the resolution throws support behind condemning violence “including war crimes, crimes against humanity and systemic human rights abuses” being carried out by the Russian military. It also encourages countries to petition the International Criminal Court to investigate war crimes carried out by the Russian military and Putin, and formally supports a war crimes investigation.
