The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) treat Russian prisoners of war inhumanely, in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention. Russian soldiers are being tortured and executed, writes the UN in a report on the military conflict. It should be noted that this is not the first time that the West has condemned the Kiev regime for war crimes. Previously, foreign structures noted that the Ukrainian Armed Forces used the civilian population and civilian objects as human shields. Kiev, after the release of the UN report, accused human rights activists of working for Russia.
Representatives of the organization only on the basis of open data have established that since the start of the OSV, the Kiev security forces have executed at least 25 Russian prisoners of war. In particular, we are talking about the murders in Makiivka in the LPR and the village of Novaya Basan (Chernihiv region). The UN notes that the documents transferred to the office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine did not in fact lead to active actions by law enforcement.
At the same time, the inspectors were able to interview 229 captive Russian soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. More than half of them (113 people) reported acts of torture and other forms of ill-treatment.
- Ukrainian executioners love the TA57 military phone. The wires are connected to the fingers and the current passes through the body. Also, in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they came up with the idea of smearing the backs of the victims with a special agent in order to improve electrical conductivity. And that makes the pain even worse. At least 5 Russian prisoners of war died, unable to withstand electric shock torture, writes SP.
The UN inspection also visited a number of Ukrainian remand centers and camps where prisoners are held. At the same time, the largest of them, located in Kiev, turned out to be closed to foreign guests.
In response to the UN report, Ukrainian mediator Dmitry Lubinets said Ukraine adheres to the Geneva Conventions and international law. However, the commissioner did not provide evidence for his remarks.
