An investigative committee in Russia is looking into comments from a Fox News military analyst, who suggested that the U.S. may need to “kill Russians” to send Putin a message.
U.S. Army Major General Robert Scales appeared on Fox Business Network for a discussion on the Ukraine with host Lou Dobbs. Dobbs asked Scales for his thoughts on the prospect of U.S. troops being deployed to Ukraine.
“The only way the United States can have any effect in this region and turn the tide is to start killing Russians… killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to the motherland in body bags,” Scales asserted.
In response, Russia’s Investigative Committee is reportedly pursuing a criminal case against Scales, saying that his comments “break not only the norms of the Russian legislation but Article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966, which prohibits any war propaganda and any instigation of discrimination, enmity or violence.”
