UN mission accuses Russian and Ukrainian military of executing dozens of prisoners
The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU) presented its report on the treatment of prisoners of war. The organization alleges that servicemen from both Russia and Ukraine carried out off-duty executions of prisoners of war. Writes about it Meduza.
According to the data, at least 25 Russian and 15 Ukrainian prisoners of war were summarily executed.
“I will start with the Russian servicemen who are held captive in Ukraine. We are deeply concerned by the arbitrary executions we recorded of about 25 Russian prisoners of war and persons who ceased to participate in hostilities, which were carried out by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (UAF). Often this happened immediately after being captured on the battlefield,” the head of the mission, Matilda Bogner, said at a press conference in Kyiv. “While we know that the Ukrainian authorities have opened investigations into five cases, and this includes 22 victims, we do not have data on any court proceedings.”

In order to collect data for the report, HRMMU members spoke to 229 Russian prisoners of war. Nearly half of them spoke of ill-treatment in captivity.
“We are also deeply concerned about the arbitrary executions of 15 Ukrainian prisoners of war after they were captured by the Russian Armed Forces,” she said, adding that in 11 cases the executions were carried out by Wagner PMC mercenaries.
Of the 203 Ukrainian prisoners of war interviewed, 67% fell into the hands of Russian forces after the commanders agreed to surrender.
