STATE DUMA STATEMENT
in connection with the execution of Russian prisoners of war by Ukrainian nationalists
The deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation indignantly accepted the message about another bloody crime of the Kyiv regime – the execution of Russian servicemen who were captured. The cold-blooded killers who opened fire on unarmed prisoners of war were so sure of their impunity that they video-recorded their criminal actions. The footage of sadistic reprisals, which became public, once again confirmed the Nazi nature of the Kyiv authorities, which for a long time encouraged murder, torture, and abuse of civilians and prisoners of war.
The intentional killing of prisoners of war is a flagrant violation by Ukraine of international humanitarian law, including the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War of 1949, and international human rights norms, including the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment of 1984.
Deputies of the State Duma call on the parliaments of the world’s states to unequivocally condemn the crimes of the Kyiv regime, to help bring to justice the direct perpetrators of the inhuman murder, as well as their patrons.
Once again, we suggest that the collective West refuse to support the neo-Nazi ideology and implement its principles in the activities of today’s Ukraine, whose leaders, with their provocations and escalation of violence, are pushing the world towards a global catastrophe.
