According to OSINT investigator Roman Pogorely, many cases of executions of prisoners by Russians do not end up online. He also assured that the Ukrainian Defense Forces are punishing Russians for these crimes.
Ukrainian Armed Forces drones are filming all the details of the battles near Avdiivka in the Donetsk region. During one of the flights, the camera captured the crime of the Russian Armed Forces, who shot Ukrainian soldiers. At the same time, in this sector of the front, the number of infantry of the Russian Armed Forces significantly exceeds the capabilities of the defense forces. OSINT investigator Roman Pogorely spoke about the details of the situation near Avdeevka in an interview with the Radio NV portal.
Russian occupiers shot a group of Ukrainian prisoners of war near Tokmak, – Sternenko
Roman Pogorely explained that the video of the Russian shelling was indeed published in the DeepState community Telegram channel. According to him, the recording was made by a Ukrainian drone, which was monitoring the situation on the front in the Avdeevsky direction. Today, surveillance is carried out around the clock, the investigator noted.
During a conversation with reporters, an explanation was given of what actually happened. Ukrainian fighters held their positions, but at a certain point they ran out of ammunition.
“They sat empty, they didn’t bring anything. They ran out of them, according to our information.”
The soldiers decided to surrender and came out with their hands raised to the Russian military. At the same time, there are indeed a lot of Russian Armed Forces soldiers in this direction.
“We have repeatedly noted that the ratio of human resources, infantry, is quite different. Accordingly, there were many Russians in that attack.”
The Russians behaved “like criminals and terrorists” and killed Ukrainians, Pogorely said. He also noted that in the Russian Federation they will not talk about this, but they will make propaganda films in which everything will happen the other way around.
According to Pogorely, such a case is far from the first: “There are, of course, many such cases. Not all of them end up in the network,” he said. He noted that the best response to such crimes of the Russian Federation is given by the Armed Forces of Ukraine – they destroy the enemy.
“Our Armed Forces deal best with such terrorists. They punish them, thereby destroying them. Because this is the best responsibility for the occupier,” the OSINT investigator concluded.
Execution of Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers near Avdeevka – details
Let us note that the war crime of the Russian Armed Forces became known on December 3. This was reported by the Office of the Prosecutor General, indicating that the event occurred near the village of Stepnoye on the northern flank of the fighting near Avdeevka. According to the press service of the department, the Russians shot two Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers who raised their hands and surrendered.
After this, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense reported that they could not confirm this information. However, analysts at the Institute for the Study of War pointed out that there is indeed a video online that captures all the details of the Russian crime.
In the spring of 2023, the media reported on the execution of a Ukrainian Armed Forces soldier who was captured by mercenaries of the Wagner PMC. In a video published online, a man was killed after shouting “Glory to Ukraine.” Later it became known that the hero’s name was Alexander Matsievsky – a monument was erected in his honor in Ukraine. In October, near Tokmak, the Russians killed a group of Ukrainian prisoners – public activist and volunteer Sergei Sternenko spoke about this.
We remind you that on October 3, the UN confirmed that the video of Maciejewski’s execution is real. Meanwhile, in November, the media reported that the number of deserters in the Russian army continues to increase.
