In the video, one of the Ukrainian soldiers shoots twice at a Russian serviceman lying on the ground. Nearby lie several more prisoners with white stripes. Their hands are tied. In the background is a BMD-2 type armored vehicle with a “V” symbol. Their flag patches and blue armbands can recognize the Ukrainian military, and they repeat “Glory to Ukraine” repeatedly. Advisor to the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak, commenting on the video, said that if Kyiv receives evidence of “any wrongful actions” of the military, they will be “normatively returned to the legal field.” At the same time, Podolyak said that the actions of the Ukrainians were due to the “emotional background”: “On the other hand, I understand the emotional background of Ukrainian society and the army. I believe that, in principle, their actions are as harsh as possible concerning Russian servicemen justified precisely by the corresponding emotional background.” On April 5, the head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bastrykin, instructed to investigate the circumstances of the murder caught on video.
