The Ombudsman requested that this issue be considered separately in the platform of the UN Human Rights Committee.
The Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Dmytro Lubinets said that he requested that the issue of war crimes by the Russians in relation to the Ukrainian military, published in the video with the execution, be considered separately on the site of the UN Human Rights Committee.
He addressed letters to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, the UN Secretary General, the International Committee of the Red Cross to do everything to ensure that the perpetrators are punished for every crime in the war. And also that this case should be recorded separately in all reports of international organizations.
“I request that the issue of misconduct concerning a prisoner of war be considered separately in the area of the UN Human Rights Committee,” said Lubinets.
The Ombudsman noted that the public execution of a prisoner is another proof of a violation of the Geneva Conventions, international humanitarian law, and a violation of the fundamental right to life.
Lubinets also said that he sent this video to his colleagues, the Ombudsmen of the World, with a request that they continue to lobby for support for Ukraine in their countries.
“And also for the parliaments of their countries to recognize Russia as a terrorist country, and the Russian aggression as a genocide of the Ukrainian people! For the Russian Federation to be excluded from all international organizations, as the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions ENNHRI made, excluding the Commissioner for Human Rights in the RF Tatyana Moskalkova,” said the Ombudsman.
Recall that on April 11, a video appeared on the network, while the Russians brutally tortured a Ukrainian prisoner of war and cut off his head. The SBU launched an investigation into a war crime.
CNN found another video showing the brutal killing of Ukrainian soldiers by the Russian invaders. Russian mercenaries allegedly removed him from the PMCs Wagner. The footage shows the dismembered bodies of two Ukrainian soldiers.
Zelensky reacted to the video of the execution of a soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
