Ukrainian military intelligence (HUR) has identified the Russians responsible for the shooting of four Ukrainian prisoners near the town of Robotyne in late May 2024. Photos of the perpetrators from Vladimir Putin's army have surfaced online. These soldiers may also be responsible for the murder of other Ukrainians during the ongoing war.

Ukrainian military intelligence (HUR) has identified the Russians responsible for the shooting of four Ukrainian prisoners near the town of Robotyne in late May 2024. The execution was carried out by members of the 70th Motorized Rifle Regiment under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Yuri Abayev.

HUR also points to the involvement of Captain Dmitry Nagorny, Temirlan Abutalimov, Yusup Imagazaliyev, and Zaur Bekov. The intelligence indicates that these same soldiers may be responsible for the killing of other Ukrainian prisoners.

Ukrainian intelligence has taken steps aimed at holding the perpetrators accountable. Evidence is being gathered to ensure justice is served. The services also declare that every war crime against Ukraine will be punished.

The Russians have repeatedly organized mass executions of Ukrainian soldiers who surrendered as prisoners. One of these brutal war crimes likely occurred on 24 February 2024 in the Bakhmut area.

As reported by the portal Kresy24, UNIAN published a drone video showing the capitulation of Ukrainian soldiers. It shows Ukrainians surrendering, raising their hands to indicate that they are unarmed and pose no threat. The Russians, however, executed them on the spot.

The international community has condemned the actions of the Russian soldiers and human rights organizations have been calling for harsh sanctions and prosecution of those responsible for these atrocities for months. They believe that the execution of prisoners of war is a serious violation of international law and must be met with an appropriate response.

HUR monitors the situation and still collects information about the actions of Russian troops on the country's territory. Ukrainian intelligence also assures that it will continue its efforts to identify and prosecute all those responsible for war crimes.
