I’m not quite sure of the reason for the outrage since this reality has been reported, sparingly, in the main stream media on more than one occasion.
Amnesty International has accused Ukraine of war crimes during its ongoing military conflict with invading Russian forces.
The humanitarian organization said in a release on Wednesday that the Ukrainian military’s tactics “violate international humanitarian law and endanger civilians” by operating weapons out of bases established in residential areas while civilians are present.
We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian Forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas,” Amnesty International Secretary General Agnès Callamard said in a statement. “Being in a defensive position does not exempt the Ukrainian military from respecting international humanitarian law.”
Ukraine’s endangering of civilians has garnered sparse criticism in the 5 eyes media. There is no doubt it’s been occurring and for many years now. Going back to 2014. Perhaps as a means of maintaining credibility these NGO’s and global institutions have to shed the light on that which they’ve largely kept in the dark?
Perhaps Zelensky needs to focus less on Vogue photo shoots?
