When Biden said war crimes got the impression slip of tongue and not official, as you said at least it is an official position now, but it doesn’t point at the Russian leadership, just members of the military.

 

 

The doctrine of command responsibility a.k.a. the Yamashita standard means Putin will almost certainly be held responsible. The comments in the story on this indicated that that's what they're looking at.

Military doctrine and war crimes are mutually exclusive.

 

It's up to the ICC to decide if war crimes were committed.

The Washington Post - Top Russian military leaders repeatedly decline calls from U.S., prompting fears of ‘sleepwalking into war’

 

today

 


Lack of communication leaves the world’s two largest nuclear powers in the dark about explanations for military movements from senior officials.

 

Repeated attempts by the United States’ top defense and military leaders to speak with their Russian counterparts have been rejected by Moscow for the last month ...

 

It remains unclear why Russia’s top generals have refused to hold calls with their U.S. counterparts.

 

I suspect that the problem lies with the Russian insistence that this is a ‘special military operation’ and unwillingness to admit the real nature of the war,” said Angela Stent, a Russia scholar at Georgetown University. ...

 

The generals may also be waiting on Putin’s approval to make the calls, given the high stakes of the conflict, and he may not be signing off.

 

Another theory is that Putin may now view the United States as a determined adversary bent on his downfall and not worth engaging. 

 

Russian officials bristled at Biden calling Putin a “war criminal,” saying it could lead to a complete break in relations.

The Yamashita standard isn't a military doctrine, it's a legal doctrine of accountability for war crimes. To quote the Guardian, "experts say, the public statements by Putin and his senior officials and the Russian president’s tight control over the campaign would help future prosecutors". I would be very surprised if he wasn't held responsible under the doctrine of command responsibility.

I'd also be surprised if Putin was OK with backdoor attempts to get at his military commanders. Sort of like Hitler being OK with Auchinleck phoning up Rommel and saying "you know, this hopeless war you're in the process of losing, maybe we should talk about an exit strategy...".

Doctrine means theories or principles held by a particular armed forces. 

 

Military Doctrine lays the foundation on which militaries are built and dictates how war will be waged at an Operational and Tactical level.   

 

It's not part of any legal system.

We're just talking past each other here, go and google "doctrine of command responsibility" and then we can continue the discussion.

 

 

Or, to make it easy for you, quoting the Oxford Bibliographies in International Law:

 

 

The doctrine of command or superior responsibility stipulates that a superior—a military or civilian leader—can be held criminally responsible when his subordinates commit international crimes. The doctrine has become part of customary international law and has been incorporated into the statutes of the international criminal tribunals and into the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
