According to Ned Price, this is not the first evidence of the atrocities of Russian troops in Ukraine. Moreover, he suggested that the atrocities on the part of the invaders would continue.
The US State Department is aware of a video of an unarmed Ukrainian soldier being executed by Russian soldiers. This was stated by the official representative of the department, Ned Price, writes CNN.
“A terrible picture of this unarmed Ukrainian being executed after a simple statement: ‘Glory to Ukraine,'” Price said.
He noted that Russian troops violate the basic rules of war, elementary humanity.
“We think Russia should be ashamed of itself,” Price said.
Also, a representative of the State Department said that this is not the first evidence of the atrocities of Russian troops in Ukraine. He also suggested that this, unfortunately, would not be the last such case.
Also, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, said that the video of the execution shows Russia’s attitude towards prisoners of war.
“For us, this is a war for our freedom, for democracy, for our values. For them, this is terrorism – such an attitude. And they post this video,” he said.
According to the head of state, the Russians have neither the laws of war nor international law, nor do they have any conventions.
Recall, on March 6, a video was published on the network with the execution of an unarmed Ukrainian defender by Russian invaders after the phrase “Glory to Ukraine.”
On March 6, it became known that the Slava Ukraini hashtag, dedicated to the soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine killed by the invaders, who became another symbol of the heroic struggle of Ukrainians, led the global trends on the Twitter social network.
