Ukrainian Officials Identify 357 Russian Soldiers Suspected of War Crimes in Ukraine

Ukrainian law enforcement officials have identified 357 individuals suspected of war crimes, including members of the Russian military and representatives of the occupation authorities.

This information was released by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Andriy Kostin following a meeting with a UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Morris Tidball-Binz.

“As of today, 357 servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces and representatives of the occupation 'authorities' have been identified as those who are suspected of committing premeditated murders, torture and ill-treatment of civilians and prisoners of war,” Kostin said.

“83 of them have been convicted. However, the real number of such crimes, including those committed in the temporarily occupied territories and in places of detention located on the territory of Russia, is much higher,” he added.

Kostin noted that the Prosecutor General’s Office is open to strengthening cooperation to ensure an effective investigation of these and other war crimes and bring those responsible to justice.
