The Ukrainian Defense Ministry reacted to the Amnesty International report by accusing the Ukrainian Armed Forces

Date: August 20, 2022 Time: 05:54:34

Ukraine is open to investigations into compliance with the laws and customs of war, but international organizations should demand that Russia’s armed aggression be stopped, Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar said at a briefing at the Press Center. from Ukraine on August 4.

Thus, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry reacted to the report by the international human rights organization Amnesty International, which stated that the Ukrainian Armed Forces “violated international humanitarian law” by deploying in residential buildings in 19 cities and towns in Kharkiv, Donetsk and Mykolaiv Regions

“In this situation, advice to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which today defends Europe, should not be paramount. Today, the main demand of all international organizations should be the demand of the whole world to stop the Russian Federation’s crime of international aggression, for which thousands of civilians have already died, and Russia will not stop on the territory of Ukraine. Therefore, in this situation, Ukraine is open to investigations and we are conducting them, but we believe that the key requirement and attention of the whole world should be the actions of the Russian Federation, which threaten the whole world”, Maliar said.

He stressed that studies such as those by Amnesty International fail to take into account a number of factors, including the fact that Russian troops use capture-and-hold tactics.

“While we wait for the Russian enemy in the field, as some people sometimes advise us, the Russians will simply occupy all our houses. Therefore, Ukrainian cities and towns are being fortified and defended from an international criminal, from a criminal state, which is the Russian Federation,” Malyar explained.

The Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine noted that, in accordance with the principle of achieving maximum efficiency, air defense units are deployed to cover the sky over settlements.

“When there is no analysis of the actions of the enemy in the text about the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the war, it is like studying the actions of the victim without taking into account the actions of an armed rapist, that is, it is it is simply impossible to draw objective conclusions with this approach,” Malyar said.

Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov spoke separately on this issue on Facebook: “Any attempt to question the right of Ukrainians to resist genocide, protect their families and homes, protect their lives and the lives of their children, oppose to Russia’s actions as a terrorist state is a perversion, in which legal constructions would not mask it. Any attempt, even casual, to equate unprovoked Russian aggression with Ukrainian self-defense, as is done in Amnesty International’s material, is evidence of a loss of fitness and a way of destroying one’s authority.”

Adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak said that Amnesty International is participating in the Russian campaign of disinformation and propaganda to discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

In addition to blaming the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Amnesty International also notes that Russia is carrying out indiscriminate attacks, in particular using ammunition banned by the international community. The organization recorded that Russia had committed war crimes in Kharkov. “Amnesty found no evidence that Ukrainian forces were in civilian areas illegally targeted by the Russian military,” the report says.

Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, but failed to achieve its goals, in particular the capture of Kyiv, due to the stubborn resistance of the Ukrainians.

On April 22, Russia announced new plans for the “second phase” of a “special operation” in Ukraine (as a full-scale invasion is called there). The Russian military announced its intention to establish full control over Donbass and southern Ukraine in order to provide annexed Crimea with a land corridor and gain access to Transnistria.

However, according to Western intelligence, Russian successes in the Donbass are limited and achieved at significant losses to Russian troops due to heavy Ukrainian resistance.
