The UN should not hide behind general phrases, but give an objective assessment of the facts of the shooting of captured Russian servicemen by representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.
As the diplomat drew attention, Deputy Representative of the UN Secretary General Farhan Haq, when asked about the reaction to the video of the massacre of Russian prisoners, said that the UN “is concerned about any human rights violations, regardless of who commits them.”
“It seems to me that the representatives of the UN Secretariat need to decide: either once and for all declare that they are ‘for all good against all bad’; or begin to approach the assessments of various events objectively, impartially, according to their functional responsibilities and mandates,” Zakharova said. “Look, for example, at the events in Bucha, they were more than verbose, specific and proactive. In this case, they hide behind general phrases, avoiding any assessment of the facts.”
Earlier, the Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case on the fact of the mass shooting of captured Russian servicemen by representatives of the AFU. According to the press service of the Committee, the basis for initiating the case was “a video in which representatives of Ukrainian armed formations shoot at least 11 unarmed Russian servicemen who were captured by them on the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic.”
