Did Putin Unleash a Genocide?
People have been debating the term ‘genocide’ since Raphael Lemkin invented the term.
Are the concentration camps in the Xinjiang region against the Uyghur Muslims in China genocide? Is Turkey’s treatment of the Kurds genocide? Was the US’ (mis)handling of Aghanistan genocide?
And if so, what relevance does this classification have to the events themselves? Does it change anything about them?
Yes, it does. Let me explain.
