image for Ukraine urges ICC to investigate video appearing to show Russians killing PoW

Ukraine has urged the international criminal court to investigate footage circulating on social media that appeared to show Russian fighters killing a Ukrainian prisoner of war.

The soldier says “Glory to Ukraine” and is then apparently shot with automatic weapons.

Late on Monday, Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, wrote on Twitter that the “horrific” video was more “proof this war is genocidal”.

Kuleba added that it was “imperative” that international criminal court prosecutor Karim Khan “launches an immediate ICC investigation into this heinous war crime”.

Ukraine’s human rights commissioner, Dmytro Lubinets, said that he had sent the video to the country’s “international partners”.

Kyiv has previously accused Moscow of torturing and killing prisoners since Russia invaded Ukraine.

In July, a video emerged that appeared to show a Russian soldier castrating and subsequently killing a Ukrainian prisoner. »

The city of Ocala, Florida, had asked the Supreme Court to intervene in the case, arguing that the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring the lawsuit.

The city said the justices should reject the atheists’ argument for why they had been injured with the prayer ceremony, making it appropriate for courts to hear their case. »

By many indications, this partial approach to total war is not haphazard, nor is it simply the result of failed execution. »
