A Ukrainian prisoner of war was shot in cold blood after shouting “Glory to Ukraine” in a video that was circulated online on Monday. The video shows a man in a Ukrainian uniform finishing his last cigarette and saying “Glory to Ukraine“, before being shot multiple times.

It is not clear where and when the video was made and independent sources are yet to confirm its authenticity.

The head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky‘s office, Andriy Yermak, said that “war crimes are cultivated in Russia and whitewashed by propaganda and myths about ‘Nazis'”, as he commented on the video.

Pinning the crime on Russian soldiers, he wrote on Telegram: “The murder of a captured man is another example of it. It is also an example of their national insignificance and weakness. There will be retribution for every such war crime. No one will be able to hide from it.”

Ukraine‘s Prosecutor General’s office said an investigation has been opened into the war crime.
