The Russian government has recently warned that Kiev is planning on murdering Russian soldiers and then posing their corpses to make them look as though they were civilians slaughtered by Russian forces. According to RT:
The Russian Defense Ministry claimed on Saturday that Ukraine will use the bodies of captured Russian soldiers to manipulate Western reporters in Irpin, a town near Kiev. Ukraine previously accused Moscow of killing hundreds of civilians in the area around the capital, which Russia denies.
Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said Kiev is “preparing another provocation with the goal of accusing Russia of mass killings of civilians.”
Konashenkov claimed that Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) officials are planning to take the bodies of people who “died from Ukrainian artillery” from a morgue to the basement of one of the buildings on the eastern outskirts of Irpin.
“The SBU will then stage the ‘neutralization’ of a ‘Russian reconnaissance unit’ at the Pushcha-Vodytsia forest, which will [according to Kiev] arrive in Irpin to ‘kill the witnesses of Russia’s war crimes.’”
The spokesman claimed that the Ukrainian forces will present the “bodies of captured Russian soldiers, who had been tortured and killed by nationalists” as “evidence” to the Western media.
We cannot say for certain if this will happen, but we do know that Ukraine has murdered Russian soldiers and POWs. Shoebat.com translated a video showing Ukrainian troops shooting and murdering Russian POWs:
There is another video that came out recently showing Ukrainian soldiers killing a downed Russian soldier:
In one recent video Ukrainian two Ukrainian fighters for the Boatswain Brigade can be heard talking about killing people who aren’t wearing blue ribbons around their arms (the mark that distinguishes Ukrainian soldiers). On the footage of their video chronicle, one of the militants asks the question: “There are boys without blue armbands, can they be shot at?” “Fuck yeah!” – happily replies the other.
This conversation took place in the town of Bucha, the site of a recent massacre. While everyone is blaming Russian soldiers for the killings, this video brings doubt about the official narrative. Perhaps what really happened was a massacre by Ukrainians who then blamed it on the Russians. When the Germans began killing Jews in Poland, they blamed it on the Poles. Perhaps what we are witnessing is mass media manipulation to get us to hate Russia.
