The adviser to the head of the Presidentʼs Office, Mykhailo Podolyak, reacted to the video of Russian soldiers who castrated a captured Ukrainian soldier with a clerical knife.

"All the world needs to understand: Russia is a country of cannibals who enjoy torture and murder. But the fog of war will not help Russian executioners avoid punishment. We identify everyone. We will get everyone," he wrote on Twitter.

Senior adviser to the US Congress, Paul Massaro, also reacted to the video. He called on the West to give Ukraine long-range ATACMS missiles and modern tanks to "put an end to this crime against humanity."

He added that Russian war crimes in Ukraine are "an insult to all humanity."

  • A video of the occupiers mocking a prisoner of war in Ukrainian camouflage began to spread in Russian Telegram groups. Two Russian-speaking soldiers castrated the prisoner with a clerical knife.
  • Dmytro Koval, an expert on international law from the NGO Truth Hounds, emphasized that this is the most obvious example of a war crime.
  • Russian propagandists are already spreading statements on social networks that this is allegedly a production to discredit the Russian troops.
