Ukrainian prosecutors have started an investigation into the shooting by russian invaders of the three Ukrainian prisoners of war near Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia region, the Prosecutor General’s Office said in a statement.

According to the probe, in December 2023, during a combat clash with Ukraine’s Defense Forces near the village of Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia region, three Ukrainian defenders were captured. An hour later, in violation of Article 3 of the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War, the invaders executed them, the statement reads.

This is yet another case of a gross violation by the aggressor state of international humanitarian law regarding the treatment of prisoners of war, the PGO emphasized.

The video of the execution of Ukrainian soldiers who had surrendered as prisoners of war by russians was posted on the internet. The use of Ukrainian prisoners of war as “human shields” on the contact line has also been documented.
