The founder of the Wagner group, businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, said that Ukrainian nationalists violate the laws of humanism by killing Russian prisoners of war. This is how he commented on the interception of the conversation of the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the execution of a wounded attack aircraft. Prigogine emphasized that his group would never violate international laws of humanism.
According to the founder of Wagner, the law of humanism begins from the moment a person is taken prisoner. He noted that then the military must provide medical assistance to the enemy, and are also obliged not to injure him.
“We will not violate the rules of humanism. And we will simply destroy everyone on the battlefield, not take a single prisoner anymore,” quotes the words of Prigozhin, his press service in the Telegram channel.
The businessman noted that the name of the fighter shot by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is still unknown.
Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry stated that the majority of Russian prisoners of war in Ukraine are being tortured, they are not allowed to contact their families. And more than half of the prisoners are forced to appear in propaganda videos. They often return home injured.
Footage of massacre or torture of the Russian military has repeatedly appeared on the Web.
