Ukraine's Main Intelligence Directorate on June 2 released an intercept of a conversation between two Russian invaders, in which one of them confessed to killing a Ukrainian prisoner of war.

According to the directorate, the voice on the intercept belongs to Denis Dereglazov, born in 1996 in the village of Pospelikha, Altai Krai, Russia.

"One tank soldier was taken prisoner, … We interrogated and shot him," the invader said, adding that "prisoners in numbers of one or two are not left alive."

The Russian invaders also spoke about the shelling of Russian positions by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"You're sitting and the shells are just whistling over your head. I can't say much here… But recently, there has been a circus here... Damn, I haven't seen anything like this here. Legs, arms… half of the body."

This is not the first intercept in which the Russian invaders speak about their war crimes in Ukraine, including the torture and killing of Ukrainian prisoners of war and civilians, and the use of banned weapons.

In an interview with NV in late April, former Ukrainian Ombudswoman Liudmyla Denisova said that Ukraine fully complied with the conditions of detention of Russian prisoners of war.

On May 31, Kyrylo Budanov, the chief of Ukraine's Main Intelligence Directorate, was appointed head of the Coordination Headquarters for the Treatment of Prisoners of War.
