On November 22, The New York Times reported some videos of alleged war crimes in the Ukrainian theater are authentic. The outlet could not, however, comment on exactly who did what. Apparently, the videos show Russian soldiers in the act of surrendering. The next clip shows the soldiers in a grisly death scene, reportedly killed by their Ukrainian captors.
Initially, Ukrainian media outlets disseminated the videos as proof that Kyiv’s forces were taking back the country. In Moscow, however, the videos became a rallying cry against war crimes as supposedly showed the slaughter of Russian troops who had waved the white flag.
Dmytro Lubinets, Chairman of the Ukrainian Commission for Human Rights, claimed on Telegram that the Russian soldiers opened fire during the act of surrendering, causing the deadly response.
The United Nations believes an investigation into what happened is warranted.
