Russian occupiers once again execute captured Ukrainian soldiers

The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine will investigate another war crime by the Russians: shooting two Ukrainian soldiers on the Zaporizhzhia front.

Details: The investigation reports that the crime was committed in June 2024 near the settlement of Robotyne in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

The video was posted on social media on 10 July.

The criminal proceeding regarding the violation of the laws and customs of war, combined with premeditated murder, has been initiated.  

Quote by Kostin: „The terrorist state of Russia keeps demonstrating utter disregard of law and basic human morals. Another proof of that is the video of the murder of two captured Ukrainian soldiers by Russian troops. In the video, it can be clearly seen that the defenders of Ukraine laid down their arms and did not resist in any way. The occupiers cynically shoot disarmed people.

We know this is not a coincidence. This is the deliberate policy of the Kremlin’s criminal regime to destroy everything Ukrainian. We will find and punish all those involved: both those who gave this order and direct executors of this brutal crime.“

Background: Since the end of November 2023, prosecutors have recorded an increase in the number of executions of Ukrainian prisoners of war by the Russian forces.
