On March 6, a video circulated on Telegram channels, which allegedly shows the moment of the execution of a Ukrainian prisoner of war by Russian soldiers. In particular, the video was published by the Trukha Telegram channel, which has more than 2 million subscribers.
In the video, an unarmed man stands at a dug trench (“beds”) and smokes. The voice-over says "take it off". The man says: “Glory to Ukraine,” and they shoot him with machine guns.
Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak has already commented on these footage, calling the video “another example of the national insignificance and weakness” of the Russian Federation: “There will be retribution for every such war crime. No one can hide from her."
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky promised to find the killers of the serviceman: “In Ukraine, it will always sound: “Glory to Ukraine!” And millions will always answer: “Glory to the heroes!” It will always be like that. Ukraine will not forget the feat of each and every one, whose life forever gave freedom to Ukraine.”
