Russian troops escalate attacks on Ukraine's civilian: Kremlin

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday that Russian troops in Ukraine are only attacking military targets,  Russian Times reported. Peskov was responding to news that the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands, would launch an investigation into possible war crimes in Ukraine.

On Monday, an ICC prosecutor stated that there is "reasonable cause to believe" that alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity are being perpetrated in Ukraine.

Kiev has filed charges against Russia with the International Criminal Court (ICC). Peskov said Moscow "categorically disputed" Ukraine's allegations, including new assertions that Russian troops in Ukraine deployed banned cluster munitions and thermobaric weaponry.

According to the report, such assertions were labeled "hoaxes" by a Russian official.

Russian troops "do not assault civilian facilities or residential areas," Peskov added, confirming earlier Russian defense ministry declarations to that effect, as per Rssian Times report.

The source claimed he couldn't comment on Russian forces' casualties in Ukraine, but noted that heads of certain Russian regions who certified casualties suffered by soldiers from their provinces didn't need approval from the federal government.
