The video appears to show Ukrainian soldiers killing captured Russian troops, according to The New York Times.
The video was taken about seven miles southwest of Bucha, where hundreds of civilians were killed during Russia’s occupation of the town.
The video has been verified by The Times, however, the outlet decided not to publish it due to its graphic nature.
A video posted on Telegram on Monday appears to show Ukrainian soldiers killing captured Russian soldiers in a village near kyiv, according to a New York Times report.
The video has been verified by The Times, however, the outlet decided not to publish it due to its graphic nature. According to The Times, it shows a Ukrainian soldier shooting a Russian soldier three times while another man says “he’s still alive. Film those marauders. Look, he’s still alive. He’s gasping.”
The video, The Times reported, also shows at least three other dead Russian soldiers near the victim – identified by white armbands commonly worn by Russian troops. One of the soldiers has an obvious head injury and his hands are tied behind his back, according to the Times report.
The soldiers are surrounded by equipment and lie on the road near a BMD-2 – an infantry vehicle used by Russian airborne units, according to military specialist Rob Lee.
In the video, which has not been independently verified by Insider, the Ukrainian soldiers are identifiable by their blue armbands and repeat “glory to Ukraine” but their unit is unclear. A Ukrainian news agency said the ambush was the work of the “Georgian Legion”, a group of Georgian volunteers that formed in 2014 to fight for Ukraine, according to the Times report.
The video was filmed north of the village of Dmytrivka, about seven miles southwest of Bucha, according to the Times report. Earlier this week, graphic videos of at least 300 civilians killed in Bucha during Russia’s occupation of the city emerged. Ukrainian officials said they were attacked as Russian troops retreated.
Ukrainian forces ambushed Russian troops around March 30, according to the Times report. In a tweet, The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said it was “accurate work” by Ukrainian troops.
