Parade of Ukrainian Prisoners of War in Russia on “Victory Day”

The aggressor country humiliates the Ukrainian military, considering them criminals or slaves

Russia continues to violate the terms of the Geneva convention and the rights of the captured Ukrainian military. The parliamentary commissioner for human rights of Ukraine, Lyudmyla Denisova, reported on inhuman conditions for prisoners of war. The defenders of Ukrainian territory and sovereignty are considered criminals in Russia. The defenders of Ukraine were taken to Russia, the Rostov region. Thus, the Russian Federation has not only illegally removed Ukrainian citizens from another territory but has not established camps for them. 

"In violation of the 1949 Geneva convention, the occupying country is holding captive Ukrainian soldiers in the general regime colonies without having converted prisons into prisoner-of-war camps," said Denisova.

The occupiers placed Ukrainian prisoners of war in two colonies of the common regime in the town of Zverevoy and Kamensk-Shakhtinsk, near the Russian-Ukrainian border. The colonies are filled exclusively by Ukrainian prisoners of war. They are guarded by officers of the federal penitentiary service of the Russian Federation and by prisoners who have been left on ancillary work. The other prisoners were transferred to a colony of 10 in Rostov-on-Don.

It should be noted that in Ukraine, Russian soldiers are kept in specially created camps during briefings, people look well-groomed and do not complain.

Another terrible news about Ukrainian prisoners of war violates the Geneva convention — the Russians want to organize a parade of prisoners of war on Victory Day. Illia Kiva, a Ukrainian politician, a traitor, and a propagandist of propaganda against Ukraine, confirms such intentions.

"Parade of thousands of Ukrainian prisoners of war at the parade on May 9 will show the true situation in which Ukraine is located and will change the attitude of citizens to Zelenskyy. The P.O.W at the parade is a moment of truth for Ukraine," wrote Kyva in the official telegram channel while making a mistake in writing a few words.

The Russian Federation does not seem to know any laws or conventions.

Putin is a man raised by his tyrannical state, for which human life means nothing, and there is no respect for the soul of others. In Putin's history, only during the war against Ukraine since 2014 it is the second march of POWs. The first was in 2014 in Donetsk. And on account of Russia itself, this is not the first dozen of such a crime. Let’s remember at least a march of German prisoners on July 17, 1944: there were 57.600 Germans in Moscow.
