BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - An expert on diplomacy from our region says Russia is engaging in war crimes in Ukraine.

Ukrainian forces regained control of a large swath of territory in the country’s northeast. Russian troops, who have been bombarding the large city of Kharkiv, were forced to retreat.

But before they left, they launched a missile strike on a water supply and a power plant, and the weather is turning cold.

Lasha Tchantouridze, an expert on diplomacy at Norwich University, calls that a war crime.
