Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russian forces have committed numerous heinous war crimes said Belkis Wille, deputy director of the Crises and Conflict division at Human Rights Watch.

The human rights NGO published an investigation on May 2, reporting “summary executions” of Ukrainian soldiers from the Russian army. The summary executions – that is, murders – of Ukrainian soldiers, shot in cold blood while surrendering or being wounded, in violation of international humanitarian law, are also part of this shameful list. » reports Belkis Wille.

In the report, HRW claims to have “investigated three incidents that appear to show the summary executions of at least 12 Ukrainian soldiers, by verifying and analyzing videos filmed by drones and published on social networks on December 2, 2023, December 27, 2023 and February 25, 2024. In each case, Ukrainian soldiers clearly showed their intention to surrender; since they were no longer participating in hostilities, they had become “hors de combat” under international humanitarian law which codifies the laws of war, and therefore could no longer be targeted.
