Members of the international community have come together in an unprecedented way to sanction Vladimir Putin's Russia as it invades and ravages Ukraine.

Despite immense pressure, Putin has refused to back down, with his troops indiscriminately killing everyone in their way, and targeting civilians.

According to former President Donald Trump, more has to be done to stop the Kremlin's inhumane aggression.

Speaking with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday, Trump said that Russia must "stop killing these people" and called for peace negotiations.

Trump stressed that "you have to work out a deal" to stop the senseless killing, as reported by The Hill.

"They're killing all of these people, and they have to stop it, and they have to stop it now," the former president continued.

When they first invaded Ukraine, Russian troops mostly refrained from shooting at civilian targets, but that has changed in recent days.

'This Is A Holocaust'

While slamming Democratic President Joe Biden's administration, Trump compared the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the Holocaust.

The Russians, he said, "don't respect the United States and the United States is like, I don't know, they’re not doing anything about it."

It is not true that the United States is "not doing anything" about the invasion. In fact, Biden and his allies have imposed devastating sanctions on Russia, isolating it from the world.

As The Hill noted, these remarks stand in stark contrast to what Trump said last week, when he described Putin as "smart" for deploying his troops to Ukraine.

Speaking with Bartiromo, Trump hesitated to say whether Ukraine should join NATO, but noted that "right now, it would be a lot easier to say yes than it would have been six months ago."

The Republican also made sure to praise Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, saying that he was "very impressed by him."

Civilian Casualties

Ukraine's State Emergency Service revealed Wednesday that more than 2,000 civilians have been killed so far, as reported by Axios.

The city of Kharkiv in particular has faced heavy attacks from Russian forces, with airborne troops landing in it overnight.

Mariupol, a port city in the southeast of Ukraine, is encircled by Russian troops.

According to the outlet, while attacks on civilian areas have increased, it is next to impossible to verify the number of casualties.
