The Russians executed those who wanted to surrender

“Now we have reliable information that a Russian military unit operating near Donetsk executed the Ukrainians who were trying to surrender rather than detain them.”

This was stated by Beth Van Schaak, US Ambassador for International Criminal Justice. “If true, it would constitute a violation of a fundamental principle of the laws of war, which is the prohibition of summary executions of civilians and combatants outside combat for surrender, injury or other incapacity,” he explained.
