Barabash: AFU eliminated all the occupiers who executed unarmed Ukrainian soldiers

Vitaliy Barabash

The Defense forces eliminated the Russian occupiers who were involved in the shooting of two Ukrainian soldiers who surrendered as prisoners in the Donetsk region.

What happened to the occupiers who shot Ukrainian soldiers

Vitaliy Barabash, the head of the Avdiivka municipal military administration, said on the air of the telethon "United News" that the Ukrainian military eliminated the invaders who shot unarmed Ukrainian soldiers near Stepove in the Donetsk region.

They surrendered, in fact, because they ran out of ammunition. As far as I know, a little later our guys stormed this position. All who were there were eliminated.

Reaction to the execution of Ukrainian prisoners of war

The AFU military commander confirmed the shooting of two unarmed Ukrainian soldiers by the Russian occupiers.

Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets said he would contact the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The video clearly shows that the Ukrainian military is taking the necessary steps, which show that they are surrendering! The soldiers were disarmed, and their hands were raised to the mountain. They did not pose any threat! The Russian side should have captured them and given them the status of prisoners of war, Lubinets notes.

The ombudsman will also appeal to the UN so that the monitoring mission records the violation of international humanitarian law.

The Prosecutor General's Office has already started an investigation into the crime.
