Advisor to the Head of the Office of the President Alexei Arestovich called the war between Ukraine and Russia a battle between civilization and barbarism. Arestovich urged Ukrainians not to resort to barbarism, so as not to lose the war.
Arestovich: Ukraine should not lose its essence
The adviser to the head of the Presidential Office noted that Ukraine is at war with Russia should not lose its essence. To prevent this from happening, as Arestovich said, Ukrainians should not resort to barbarism, which the invaders abuse.
It should be understood that the war is between civilization and barbarism. And if we resort to barbarism, then we lose in the true sense of the word. Not territory, but losing our essence. Ukraine should not lose its essence, he said.
Arestovich said that Ukraine defends European values. He urged to destroy the enemy on the battlefield.
“The enemy must be destroyed by all means on the battlefield. And there can be no sentiment there,” added the adviser to the head of the OP.
He reminded that in Ukraine civilians are allowed to liquidate the Russian military and no one will be held criminally responsible for this. To do this, you do not need to take the Russians prisoner.
If the invaders are captured, then, despite the emotions, you need to act in accordance with the norms of the Geneva Convention.
Just don't take prisoners when there's a fight. But if you have already been taken prisoner, then you need to remember the Geneva Convention without the emotional burden that every individual fighter and all of us have, – summed up Arestovich.
