The Russian foreign Ministry said that such statements are “legal implications” and playing with words is not necessary.

But the state Department clarified that Kerry was not formally accused Russia, but only expressed “his sincere opinion.”

According to a state Department spokesman, John Kirby, was quoted by RIA Novosti, Kerry meant that it was necessary “these violations of international law,” to investigate properly, as they “can potentially be classified as war crimes”. This investigation, said Kirby should be conducted “in the framework of the UN and the international community.”
