On Telegram Russian soldiers are clearly heard referring to Ukrainian soldiers as “children of prostitutes.”
The sick and twisted rant by Russian troops then accused Ukrainian troops on the Telegram account of “very often question our soldiers, and often soldiers who cannot possess any information that would be expedient to obtain through torture.
“They do it out of sadism, often recording crimes on camera.
“So, Ukrainian bastards, know that the heads of your sons are already decorating the fences of some houses in the liberated territories, their genitals are being eaten by stray dogs.”
The footage which we have seen is too horrific to be shown, but a Russian soldier can be seen holding down the Ukrainian POW who is gagged and being beaten.
Then a Russian soldiers rips off his military trousers and starts to mutilate the POW, he is then seen throwing his genitals away.
Aric Toler, a researcher for investigative website Bellingcat, told the Times that “unfortunately the video is genuine” and showed no signs of any editing.
Marie Struthers, Amnesty International’s Eastern European director, said, “Those suspected of criminal responsibility for this horrific assault must be investigated.
“International law is clear: prisoners must not be subjected to any form of torture or ill treatment.
“Their rights must be respected in accordance with the Geneva Convention.”
Reacting to the footage, Mikhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said, “All the world needs to understand: Russia is a country of cannibals who enjoy torture and murder.
“But the fog of war will not help to avoid the punishment of the executioners. We identify everyone. We will get everyone.”
The Telegram account belonging to DShRG Rusich added, “Russia is waging this holy war with the hands of a Russian soldier.
“Right now, at this very second, thousands of young Russian men, being in the hardships of war, risking their lives, are working for the future of our country.
“And if one of these men decided to castrate a soldier of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, then he had damn good reasons for it.”
They then ranted, “our enemy does this en masse, laughing and raging at his own impunity, because he knows that the most terrible thing that awaits him is deprivation of freedom, delicious Russian rations and qualified medical assistance.
“There are people who are quite rightly not satisfied with this.
“We do not condemn these people.”
