“The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine received an audio intercept of the conversations of the occupiers, which refers to the order of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to kill all prisoners of war who are in their captivity in the region of Popasna (Luhansk region) , “Ukrainian Military Intelligence” tweeted on Wednesday.
“This is a clear war crime, a violation of international law, and another striking example that the Russian military is murderers, rapists and robbers,” it added.
An alleged intercepted audio recording released on Wednesday showed the voices of unidentified Russian soldiers saying: “What can I tell you, damn it, [expletive], [unintelligible] – You keep the most senior of them, and let the rest go forever. Let them go forever, damn it, no one will ever see them again, including relatives. ,
Nation World News could not confirm the authenticity of the recording and has reached out to the Russian Defense Ministry for comment.
The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) had previously issued an alleged communications interception of a Russian ground unit commander, who said that Russian aircraft were planning to “ground everything” around Azovstal, the steel factory that had been under siege. In the redeployment of Ukrainian defenders is the port city of Mariupol.
On Thursday, in a meeting with his defense minister, Russian President Vladimir Putin said there was no need to attack the plant, but that it should be surrounded, and those inside should be given a chance to surrender.
“Shut down this industrial area so that not a single fly can enter,” he said.
The SBU had previously released audio from alleged intercepted radio traffic discussing the killing and rape of civilians by Russian soldiers, emphasizing allegations of war crimes by Russian soldiers.
Germany’s foreign intelligence service has also intercepted alleged radio communications where Russian soldiers spoke of shooting soldiers and civilians in Ukraine. Military observers have also noted a tendency for Russian troops to use unsecured communications in Ukraine.
Speaking from an undisclosed location to Nation World News on Wednesday, Serhi Haidai, the head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, said 80% of his territory is under Russian control, and that if Ukraine does not resist, “Russia is certainly not going to stop.” Will go on and on here.
“Surely they [Russians] are spreading a lot,” he said. “We have set up our security in many cities. They are trying to encircle our soldiers, there is a lot of bad work going on… but they have not got any success so far. We are doing well to destroy their equipment.”
Haidai continued, “We have a very serious situation here. The whole area of Lugansk is being shelled. There is no safe city … We understand that the Russian government is going to move forward and destroy everything in its path.” So we’re trying to get everyone out as much as we can.”
