Russians violate the Geneva Convention, using the labor of the Ukrainian prisoners of war — Ukrainian Ombudsman
“The captured Ukrainian military are sent to the temporarily occupied Luhansk region for the forced labor. Russians force them to collect the bodies of their comrades.
The relevant video was published by one of the Russian propaganda Telegram channels.
The Russian invaders claim that the bodies of Ukrainian soldiers will be kept until a dialogue is established with Ukraine or until relatives come to pick them up on their own.
By using the labor of Ukrainian prisoners of war, the invaders violate Articles 49 and 52 of the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War,” Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova informed.
