This is why Ukrainians foolish enough to surrender had better check in the with the Red Cross first so questions can be asked.

In the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, at least two people died and seven more were wounded after Russian forces on Sunday shelled a high-rise apartment block and other civilian buildings, the head of the city's military administration said in a series of Telegram posts.

Absolutely savage. Russia knows they will never get that city back.

As if the Kiev regime hadn't done the same with Russian soldiers.... They have already lost the war, they will not get past the winter to surrender...

Russian map will be bigger this 2024..

The Ukrainian public is dispersing this video, explaining that it is Russian soldiers shooting captured two from the 45th separate infantry battalion.

Ukrainian officials have already begun building a new "Bucha" around this episode by contacting the UN.

Why?

It is clear that the flow of prisoners has increased significantly recently: whole units surrendervusing the call sign Volga. The repressive organs of the Ukr are unable to resist this flow. Therefore, they tried to resort to the simplest trick: a staged video. To be honest I didn't read the article, the title of the article alone suggests that this is a fake. Russians themselves shoot the two, made the video themselves, and put the video online themselves?

The Russians have been doing much, much worse.

They're as bad as the Nazis were during WWII.

Turn loose a bunch of murderers and rapists, and they commit war crimes.

what a surprise.

And if they do, what will you say?

Russ mitary experts say, that if not to take the southern towns (Nikolaev, Kherson, Odessa) the war will resume again sooner or later. Russia is pursuing its own interests, security interests of the huge country.

History has recorded what the Russian troops did to surrendered Germans after WW2. Mass rapes and murders of women and children, summary executions of civilians, looting and total destruction.

They have form - and it seems nothing has changed.

Execution of partisans is not a war crime, those bandits committed murders,sabotaging when they disguised as civilians or providing information through spying to enemy. Russia don't do inflicting heavy casualties on civilians like a war now on going in Gaza does!

The video has all the hallmarks of being staged - right down to the dramatic music.

I remember someone fell for the video of 2 UAF sweeping through a trench eliminating everyone and everything in an Uber superman effort in an FPS-style video meant to appeal to CoD players - and play on one special point in propaganda; they are superhumans and the Russians a bunch of noobs.

This video is designed to appeal to another special emotion: victimization. Kyiv is the innocent victim you see and didn't commit outrages in the Donbas since 2014. And this playing-the-victim card again couldn't come enough now that the Middle East is imploding and media attention has shifted.

Thirdly it is well known that UAF can surrender by getting on the radio and using a well-known river as a codename. This is but a ham-fisted attempt to slow down the surrenders as the mercury drops.

The noobs forgot that the area is blanketed with snow and mud.

Amateur hour.

The Russians have inflicted thousands of atrocities including murder and rape of women and young children. More than 100,000 Ukrainian children were abducted and removed to camps in Russia.

Regional Gov. Oleksandr Prokudin separately reported on Sunday that Russian shelling that day damaged two of Kherson's hospitals.

Shelling and blowing up hospitals has now been normalized by Western politicians. Russians are undoubtedly eager to learn more from the IDF's game and will soon be looking for tunnels and Ukrainian terrorists hiding behind human shields.

The Ukrainians know what they are up against. There can be no surrender.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Plenty of reports online about fascist Russia releasing murderers and rapists (common in Russia), as well as recruiting mentally disabled men, alcoholic lunatics, and teenagers just out of school - and throwing them into battle to replace their huge amount of casualties.

Get those shipments of body bags ready.

So we can laugh at you when it is exactly the same in the Spring, right?

This is total BS (and/or projection), probably meant to discourage their soldiers to stop surrendering in droves.

And if they do, what will you say?

I'm quite confident Russia will be as pathetic in 2024 as it was in 2022 and 2023. They can't even remove the Ukrainian bridgeheads on the left bank of the Dnipro.

Russ mitary experts say, that if not to take the southern towns (Nikolaev, Kherson, Odessa) the war will resume again sooner or later. Russia is pursuing its own interests, security interests of the huge country.

Oh they say that, huh? Well that just proves there is no peace to be had with Russia. How many vietnams of Russians will it take to remove the 40 million people fighting you?

Oh so now you just declare everyone raped and murdered to be partisans, huh? Convenient but Russia still looks like a horde state as a result.

I assume you will be as exercised about Russia's war as about Israel's then. Ukraine has nothing to do with what the IDF is doing.

This article correctly uses the word verify twice - in the sense that nothing that is asserted can be independently verified.

It's very important to keep that in mind when reading these sorts of things. Pretty much everything certain quarters have asserted has turned out to fraudulent. These muppets will say anything.

The UK and Germany aren't your allies

They have never been!!! It's just that you have to choose the lesser of two evils.
