On the channels Telegram Ukrainians circulate a video apparently showing the summary execution of a Ukrainian prisoner of war by the Russian military. Before being shot, the prisoner declared "Glory to Ukraine".
According to the news agency "Rbk Ukraine", the head of the presidential office, Andriy Yermak, commented on the video stating that Russia "will pay for every war crime committed". “War crimes are encouraged in Russia. They are explained by their propaganda and myths about 'Nazis'. The killing of a captured person is another example of this,” Yermak wrote on his Telegram channel. However, there is no indication of the place and date of the event and it cannot be ruled out that it was a shooting for violation of the war code.
Ukrainian human rights defender Dmytro Lubinets sent the video to international organizations. “The execution of a captured Ukrainian soldier is a violation of the Geneva conventions, it is a manifestation of meanness,” wrote Lubinets on Telegram, commenting on the video circulated on social networks, where a Ukrainian soldier is killed after declaring “Glory to all 'Ukraine". The Ukrainian ombudsman noted that while "all over the world these words arouse respect and pride", for the Russian military this slogan becomes a reason to shoot people. “I sent this video to international partners and colleagues, ombudsmen from different countries of the world as confirmation of a new war crime by Russia,” concluded Lubinets.
