Many believe that Vladimir Putin has already committed horrific war crimes.
If the most recent reports are accurate, the list of his crimes is about to grow longer.
Reports are now coming in that Putin is planning public executions to crush morale in Ukraine.
An intelligence official in Europe first reported the new tactic to Bloomberg.
Fox News has also confirmed this report.
Public executions are being planned in captured cities to crush the morale of citizens in Ukraine.
So far, the people of Ukraine have risen up, with many private citizens arming themselves and fighting alongside Ukrainian troops.
This is more than likely one of the reasons that Putin has been unable to roll through Ukraine as quickly as he had planned.
The public executions are clearly meant to deter citizens from joining the fight.
So far, thousands of citizens have been killed during this war, including women and children.
Nobody is safe from the wrath of Putin at this point.
Even though reports surfaced days ago that the port city of Kherson, in southern Ukraine, had been captured, that was not confirmed until Wednesday.
This is the first major city that Russian forces have been able to secure.
As this violence continues, even Putin allies are beginning to question his tactics, demanding that the assault stop, and Putin come to the table to negotiate peace.
If these reports are accurate and public executions are held, it will be a gamechanger in terms of how the West addresses Putin.
