Outrage over alleged beheading video: Ukraine launches war crime investigation | DW News
Ukraine says it's opened a war crimes investigation after two videos emerged online appearing to show Russian soldiers beheading Ukrainian prisoners of war. The shocking footage has drawn international outrage, with the Kremlin describing the videos as 'awful' -- but raising questions about its authenticity.  In a tweet, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called Russia 'worse than ISIS.' Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy denounced the newly-surfaced video. "There is something that no one in the world can ignore: how easily these beasts kill... we won't forget anything, nor will we forgive murderers," Zelenskyy said in a video posted to social media. The video, which is circulating on social media, shows what appears to be Russian soldier pinning down a screaming Ukrainian soldier. The Russian soldier then beheads the Ukrainian soldier with a saw and holds up the severed head while a voice off-camera cheers. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba compared the footage to the infamous beheading videos posted by the so-called "Islamic State" group (IS) from Syria. "It’s absurd that Russia, which is worse than IS, is presiding over the UNSC," he said, referring to the United Nations Security Council where Russia took up the rotating presidency this month. "Russian terrorists must be kicked out of Ukraine and the UN and be held accountable for their crimes." Ukraine's domestic security agency said an investigation is underway while Zelenskyy said Russian soldiers carried out similar acts of torture in Bucha and elsewhere. Zelenskyy promised to bring the culprits to justice. "There will be legal responsibility for everything," Zelenskyy said. #ukrainewar #russia #warcrimes Subscribe: For more news go to: Follow DW on social media: ►Facebook: ►Twitter: ►Instagram: ►Twitch: FΓΌr Videos in deutscher Sprache besuchen Sie:
