Kiev demands that the UN and the Red Cross investigate the execution of Ukrainian prisoners

   Ukrainian human rights commissioner Dmytro Lubinets has asked the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations to launch


an investigation into the circumstances that led Russian troops to execute some Kiev soldiers during their retreat from Avdiivka: Lubinets himself states this on Telegram. The reference is to the alleged executions of six unarmed Ukrainian prisoners of war in Avdiivka, already the subject of an investigation by the Ukrainian Security Service.

   "The families of the defenders identified Heorhiy Pavlov, Andriy Dubnytsky and Ivan Zhytnyk as dead. With them were also Oleksandr Zinchuk and Mykola Savosik, killed by Russian soldiers. The information about the sixth soldier has not yet been confirmed - wrote Lubinets - "As the Ombudsman of Ukraine, I urgently sent letters to the ICRC and the United Nations to register this war crime and clarify all the circumstances. I would like to underline that this is not the first time that Russia seriously violates international humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions, executing prisoners of war".
