Ukraine soldiers shooting russian pows, tortured shot in knees
The Russian government says that Ukraine is torturing Russian POWs, and it has started a probe after videos of the abuse went viral.
Russia claims that Ukraine is torturing Russian prisoners of war. After videos of the abuse went viral, Russia launched a probe into the matter.

It looked like they were being questioned by people who looked like Ukrainian soldiers. The videos showed Russian soldiers lying on the ground bleeding and with broken legs, and they were being questioned.

Several videos of Ukrainian soldiers allegedly torturing Russian prisoners of war were released last week. This has led to a lot of people criticizing Ukraine's government. This video and its content could not be independently checked by News18.

There will now be an investigation to find out if Russian POWs were treated unfairly, the news agency RT said in a report, Maria Dubovikova, a free-lance journalist, first shared the video on YouTube.

There are a lot of people in the video, and the Russian soldiers are lying on the ground, some of them bleeding heavily. A Ukrainian soldier is said to have shot a Russian soldier on the leg, and then he beats all of the wounded Russian soldiers.

DUBOVIKOVA: I've shared two videos with you. You can see Russian soldiers being beaten and interrogated for more than two minutes in the first one. In the second video, newly arrived POWs are shot directly on their legs at point blank range. It's only 13 seconds long, but it's very important.

Russian prisoners of war are shot in the legs by Ukrainian soldiers, and then they get a very rough beating. Is it possible to think that the Russian military was taken after they were hurt? But that isn't true. "At the end of the video, we can see Ukrainian soldiers shooting all of the new prisoners through their legs," she tweeted while sharing the second-clip, which shows a different scene.

The videos that have been tweeted have already had more than a million people watch them so far.

Eliott Higgins, an independent journalist and the founder of the website Bellingcat, said that the accusations against Ukrainian soldiers should be looked into. Pro-Russian observers say that Higgins has been on the side of Ukraine. An accident that needs to be looked into more. "Maybe the videos in this thread can be geolocated," he said in a tweet.

If Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, had his way, all prisoners of war should be treated humanely by the Ukrainian soldiers, but that's not all. People can't be sentenced or executed without a court having made a ruling first.

A group called the Azov Battalion, which is thought to be a neo-Nazi group, has been posting videos of people being mistreated in Ukraine's east and south.
