Footage has emerged which shows Russian soldiers firing machine guns on Ukrainian protesters throwing what looks like smoke grenades in Kherson.
The unarmed peaceful protesters told the Russian soldiers to go home then they opened fire towards the crowd throwing grenades.
The United Nations Human Rights office have given the Kremlin a warning over the ever increasing evidence of Russian attacks on the civilian’s across Ukraine.
OHCHR spokesperson Liz Throssell said, “Civilians are being killed and maimed in what appear to be indiscriminate attacks, with Russian forces using explosive weapons with wide-area effects in or near populated areas.
“These include missiles, heavy artillery shells and rockets, as well as airstrikes.”
She added, “We remind the Russian authorities that directing attacks against civilians and civilian objects, as well as so-called bombardment in towns and villages and other forms of indiscriminate attacks, are prohibited under international law and may amount to war crimes.”
