Russia is filming staged videos showing inhuman treatment of “Russian prisoners” by alleged Ukrainian soldiers, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi said on March 27.
He said that such videos were being made in order to discredit the armed forces of Ukraine.
Servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other lawful military formations strictly observe the norms of international humanitarian law, he said in Telegram messaging channel.
Zaluzhnyi urged to take into account the realities of the informational and psychological warfare and trust only official sources.
Video emerged on March 27 of Ukrainian soldiers allegedly shooting Russian prisoners of war in the legs. The video provoked controversy, with some pointing out that its source was a pro-Kremlin Twitter account.
