Up to Putin: prosecutors created a map with hundreds of Russian war criminals

Ukraine has amassed hundreds of dossiers on more than 600 Russians, including military commanders involved in war crimes during Russia's all-out war against Ukraine.

Ukrainian prosecutors are collecting evidence of Russian war crimes and detailed data on the entire Russian military command.

The scheme with names and photos is on the board, which is 1.5 meters high and 4 meters wide. It depicts suspects ranging from hundreds of Russian soldiers to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and President Vladimir Putin.

There are names and photographs of a number of individuals who are under investigation in Ukraine because of their possible involvement in war crimes. The map shows hundreds of Russian military, divided into regiments, up to the Supreme Commander Vladimir Putin, the newspaper writes.

“Mariupol slaughterer”, “butcher Buchi: who is on the list of criminals

One of the suspects is Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev . He led the siege of Mariupol, where, according to Ukrainian authorities, the Russian army killed at least 22,000 people. The destruction of Mariupol has been compared to the siege of the city of Aleppo in Syria, which was reduced to rubble by Russian bombardments. It was Mizintsev who commanded the raids there. He partially used this tactic in Mariupol as well.

As in Aleppo, Mizintsev first cut off the Ukrainian Defense Forces from their supply lines and then squeezed them street by street. At the same time, the bombing stopped, preventing civilians from leaving the city. That is why the colonel-general received the nickname “Mariupol butcher”.

Also on the list is Russian Colonel General Alexander Zhuravlev, who helped Mizintsev during the 2016 Aleppo bombings.

Zhuravlev was the only Russian officer who could sign the order to shell Kharkiv from Russian Belgorod with Smerch cluster rockets, which is prohibited in most countries of the world. Cluster munitions were subsequently found in residential areas with no personnel or military infrastructure.

The list of Russian war criminals also includes 40-year-old Azatbek Omurbekov , who led Russian troops who committed murders, rapes and torture against civilians in the Kiev region. For which Omurbekov was nicknamed “The Butcher of Buchi”.

Also, the list of war criminals maintained by Ukrainian prosecutors also mentions 51-year-old Colonel Oleg Timoshin, who is in charge of the occupiers who dropped an X-22 anti-ship missile on the Amstor shopping center in Kremenchug on June 27. Then the invaders killed at least 20 people, injured more than 55 people.

How Ukraine will hold Russia accountable

  • Ukrainian prosecutors and investigators are doing everything possible to record in detail the war crimes of the Russian military on the territory of our state. The Ukrainian authorities insist on an international tribunal to investigate Russia's crimes.
  • And he is doing everything possible so that the world hears, knows about the atrocities of the Russians and contributes to bringing those involved to justice. The first successes in this direction have already been made.
  • The NATO Parliamentary Assembly recognized Russia as a terrorist state, and also supported the resolution, which refers to the creation of a special tribunal on the fact of Russian aggression. However, such a decision still needs to be supported by each individual country at the national level.
  • On November 23, the European Parliament recognized Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism and a state using means of terrorism.
  • The UN decided to circulate a draft resolution on the establishment of a special Nuremberg-type tribunal to hold the Russian leadership accountable for Russia's crimes in Ukraine.
