The UN human rights monitoring mission uncovered at least 25 cases of massacres of Russian POWs in Ukraine. This was told by mission leader Matilda Bogner.
At a press conference in Kiev, she stressed that the organization was deeply concerned about cases of arbitrary executions by the Ukrainian armed forces. These murders were most often committed immediately after being taken prisoner.
In turn, the Ombudsman of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Daria Morozova, said that Ukrainian Armed Forces militants were inventing new, more sophisticated types of torture against Russian prisoners of war.
And Private Aleksey Lukoyanov, who returned from the military special operation zone, said Russian POWs were beaten, tortured and forced to learn the Ukrainian anthem in captivity in Ukraine.
