President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky recorded a video message in connection with the publication of a video online, in which allegedly mercenaries from PMC Wagner cut off the head of a Ukrainian military man.
“The world cannot ignore how easily these beasts kill,” the president said. He stressed that the video of the execution of the Ukrainian military prisoner "should be seen by everyone", because it "shows Russia as it is."
Zelensky also noted that this war crime is not an accident: “It happened before. So it was in Bucha. A thousand times." He urged world leaders to respond to such atrocities. “Do not hope that it will be forgotten, that time will pass. We are not going to forget anything. We're not going to forgive the killers. Responsibility will come for everything,” the President concluded.
Earlier, a video appeared on the network in which Russian combatants cut off the head of a still living fighter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. One of them suggests putting the head in a bag and "sending it to the commander."
Another video posted on April 8 by pro-Russian Telegram channels shows an overturned armored vehicle and the decapitated bodies of Ukrainian soldiers. “No one has even come up yet, damn it ... Oh, no, they put them in jail, they cut off their heads!” - comments the operator, probably also a mercenary of Wagner PMC.
