Videos of an alleged execution of Russian soldiers by Ukrainian troops have caused outrage. Kyiv denies any guilt. A US diplomat has now stated that the allegations against Ukraine cannot be compared with the alleged crimes committed by Russia.

Global Criminal Justice Officer at the US State Department Beth Van Schaack told reporters Monday that videos showing alleged executions of Russian soldiers by Ukrainian troops are worrying. According to her, the international law of war applies equally to all warring parties, both attackers and defenders. However, Van Schaack emphasized that the allegations against Ukraine cannot be compared with the alleged crimes committed by Russia.

“When we look at the sheer level of criminal activity by Russian troops, it is enormous compared to the allegations against Ukrainian troops that we have observed.”

According to the politician, Ukraine is also dealing with allegations responsibly. The country basically confirms their alleged abuses, condemns them and promises to investigate. For its part, Russia always responds with propaganda, denial and false information.

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelenskiy has denied that Ukrainian troops were responsible for the alleged execution of Russian prisoners of war. The country had previously denied its alleged involvement in the murder of Russian journalist Darya Dugina. However, US intelligence services attributed the attack to Kyiv.

A Ukrainian rocket hit Poland last Tuesday, killing two people. Zelensky repeatedly emphasized that it was a Russian missile. For a short time the world faced a Third World War.

The videos showing the alleged execution of Russian soldiers by Ukrainian troops surfaced on the internet last week. The US newspaper confirmed on Sunday New York Times the authenticity of the videos. Russia vowed on Monday to hold all perpetrators accountable.
