Reaction after Amnesty report on UAF crimes

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that the Amnesty International report on the crimes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine does not suit the West.

In early August, the human rights organization Amnesty International published a report in which cases were recorded when the Ukrainian military posed a threat to the civilian population through their actions.

The document reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine violated the rules of warfare by placing weapons in schools and hospitals.

The report caused indignation in Kyiv and among some representatives of Western political circles.

At the same time, Russia pointed out that it is high time to show the crimes of the Kyiv authorities against their own people to the international community.

Later it was reported that the Amnesty report on the crimes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be checked by "independent experts".

“Because the result should be different.

The one that suits the mainstream.

Facts don't matter.

Since they said that the Kyiv regime does not shoot at civilians, it means that it does not shoot.

anti-scientific approach.

But it is precisely its presence that defines the current Western system as a dictatorship,” Zakharova stressed.

The Ukrainian military continues to strike at civilian targets in the Donbass.

According to an RT correspondent, on the afternoon of August 14, the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired 155 mm shells at the Kuibyshevsky district of Donetsk.
