Moscow to investigate murderers of Russian prisoners of war

The execution of Russian soldiers is considered a war crime.

The spokesman for the Russian presidency, Dmitri Peskov, reported Monday that Moscow will investigate the murderers of the prisoners of war, who were executed at the hands of the Ukrainian forces while they were unarmed.

"Undoubtedly, Russia itself will search for those who committed this crime. They must be found and punished," Peskov said at a press conference, quoted by Sputnik.

Similarly, Russia expressed its willingness to carry out an investigation on an international scale, and hopes that it can be carried out effectively.

"Russia will do everything possible within the framework of international mechanisms to draw attention to this crime and call those who may be involved in it to order and law," he said.

Execution of war crime prisoners

It should be remembered that, last week, two videos of a mass execution of Russian military prisoners of war at the hands of Ukrainian troops began to circulate on social networks, an action that is considered a war crime, according to the Rome Statute.

In the videos, neither the time nor the place of the execution was specified, however, it was considered that it could have been carried out in the city of Makéyevka, in the Lugansk People's Republic.

Similarly, it is being investigated whether those executed could be members of the Central Military District or the Donbass People's Militia.

Attacks on nuclear power plant

On the other hand, the spokesman for the presidency stressed that Russia is not seeking a change of government in Ukraine, as President Vladimir Putin has stated since the beginning of the special military operations on kyiv.

"Russia seeks to achieve its objectives of a special military operation. These goals can be achieved in different ways and in different formats,' she pointed out.

On the other hand, the Kremlin spokesman referred to the attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, registered this weekend.

In this regard, the Kremlin urged the international community to put pressure on Ukraine to stop the attacks.

It should be remembered that, on several occasions, Moscow has asked that the attacks stop, to avoid serious consequences.

Just this weekend, Ukraine fired 20 artillery shells at the nuclear plant.

After the attacks, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, described as "extremely worrying" the news of explosions in the compound of the power station.
