Russian commanders are executing their own soldiers who lay injured instead to providing medical treatment for them. Vladimir Putin’s very own soldiers are speaking out and a lieutenant-colonel has been accused of shooting many troops.
A captured Russian soldier said that a commander asked another if he could walk after being injured, he said no and was then immediately shot dead.
Young intelligence troops who were captured by Ukrainian forces recounted how their commanders had “finished off their wounded.”
Ukrainian journalist Volodymyr Zolkin asked a captured soldier what he meant, he said, “Just like that…a wounded soldier is lying on the ground, and a battalion’s commander shoots him dead from a gun.”
He said, “It was a young man, he was wounded.
“He was on the ground. He was asked if he could walk, so he was shot dead with a gun.”
Another soldier said, “The most important thing – this wasn’t a single case. The Lieutenant-Colonel was walking around.”
A third then claimed “He shot four or five like this.”
The second soldier said, “They were all young men.”
The third soldier added, “They could have been rescued, given help, taken out of there. He simply shot them dead.”
Ukraine has also accused Russia of not taking back their dead soldiers and bodies are piling up placed in refrigerated trains.
The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Ostorozhno Media that they have “no information” on the dead Russian soldiers or even the wounded in Ukraine.
Peskov was told, “People from all over the country write in social networks that they cannot even get the bodies [of the dead soldiers in Ukraine].
“The captives are in trouble too…
“What will we do with our dead and will we exchange captives?”
The Kremlin’s spokesman answered, “We do not have this information. It is with the Ministry of Defence.”
