Amnesty International Has Published a Report on Russian War Crimes

Amnesty International has issued a report on war crimes committed by Russian forces in the west of the Kyiv region.

In April, Amnesty International members investigated war crimes in Bucha, Borodyanka, Vorzel, Makariv, Dmytrivka, and other Ukrainian towns in the northwest Kyiv region. The NGO members have interviewed 45 civilians who witnessed or experienced any type of war crime by Russian soldiers, be it brutal murders or building airstrikes. The investigators have also collected satellite imagery, videos, and photos covering all the previously invaded region areas.

According to the report, Amnesty International has documented 22 cases of unlawful killings of civilians with tortures and executions performed before shooting. Amnesty International has also highlighted the use of sub-sonic bullets available for some Russian elite army units to attack civilian citizens. The Ukrainian forces do not use these bullets.

In Borodyanka, when airstrikes took place in March, the missiles hit eight residential buildings that collapsed and caused massive destruction around them. At least 40 residents were killed and those who were hiding in the buildings’ basements.
